DYSU #96 - Brads Challenge


Brads aren't nearly the go-to item that they used to be, but of course I still have them in virtually every colour! I do love them for a little bit of 'something' that doesn't add too much weight to a card. Here they're edging the banner the monkey is resting on. I even dug down in my stash for my oldest brads, from Making Memories!


Supplies: papers from Kaisercraft;
brads from Making Memories;
Pebbles monkey sticker;
Doodlebug birthday sticker;
red foam Thickers, American Crafts
The linky for DYSU's brad challenge is open until Tuesday if you want to play too!
xoxo,
Jessi

I always find that when I try to add brads I just take them away again, but I also have them in most colours... go figure, I really do like the look of them obviously. Your card is fantastic, and the brads are perfect!
