Painter Teddy Birthday card (Di's Digis image)

Hi everyone,

How easy it to create masculine cards when we are blessed to have such gorgeous images like these to play with? Di's Digis latest challenge is "Make it Masculine" and I knew instantly this was the little guy I wanted to use for it. I just bought my paint brush die cuts at a craft show last weekend so what perfect timing! I used some copper brads and a wooden rectangle for the sentiment (the sentiment itself is a font I have on the computer, they are free) I used some liquid pearls for the "paint" and pewter pearls from Flourish with a Bling who are having a 50% off sale (see below).


Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout May, everything is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage! If you're order is over $200AUD we will pay half the shipping (international orders).
