Fred, She Said ~You're a Classic!
I was so anxious to use this gorgeous pre-colored digi from Fred, She Said designs--perfect card for the Dad, Grandfather, Husband!! And the beauty is that it goes together so quickly!
I used matted wood paper for the background and a flannel like print paper that I grudged up with an emery board on the edges/torn and curled on the edges. If my sewing machine hadn't mis-behaved there would've been stitching around the plaid darn it! The brown gingham ribbon and gold ribbon slide keep the rustic theme and then I printed a sentiment in rust lettering, matted, and threaded the circle with a rust/burgundy colored safety pin. Think I will do several more-I've already got the images cut out in rectangles, ovals, big and small-Perfect for getting ahead on my "manly" cards. Thanks for looking! Carolyn
