|Snowboard Boy - MFT|
In putting the card together, I used the Cute Card Thursday challenge of "something old". I interpreted the challenge as using old things from my supplies. I rooted around in my scrap drawers and came up with some paper I have had in there for close to five years!! Seriously - the brown paper was a scrap of about 4" x 8" and I loved it at the time. The polka dot was about twice the size of the one I have used in my card. Both have been passed over with the thought, "I can't use that one - what if I need it?!?" The metal embellishments have been sitting around for years too. It kind feels good to use some of this stuff I have been collecting! I also think this card will work for the Papertake Weekly Anything Goes challenge this week.
One more thing to point out - the number 4 is actually cut from an embossing folder I have. I don't have any letter dies, so I improvised. This is a great birthday card for a little boy who took up skiing this winter, a.k.a. - my grandson, Ellis.
