Man's Birthday Card

This is my brother-in-law's birthday card. Getting better, I think, although I can see more that could have been done to it. However, it is winging its way across the fens to Ramsey as I write, so my brilliant observations are a case of twenty-twenty hindsight, I'm afraid. I can see that I would have added a gold mini brad or two, and some glimpses of vintage images stamped across the striped paper... which is all BG, by the way, decorated with some old buttons from my old button box, one of which didn't look old enough.. until I distressed it a bit. Well, you'd be distressed if someone wanted to soften your edges with a nasty raspy file! The green paper was also Cuttlebugged a bit.




Hugs,
