Old Guys Rule

Crafty Cardmakers new challenge for this  fortnight is 'Birthday'. You can create anything you like; card, tags, etc as long as it meets the challenge theme and you do NOT enter it into more than 15  other challenges. Have fun and create!

My choice was to create a card celebrating a 76th Birthday  with a wee bit of humour. The digital image is Old Buzzard from QKR Stampede and I coloured it with Prismacolor markers.  The sentiment was created in Word using the familiar Old Guys Rule saying. I added the twine, button, rhinestone and  brad as a finishing touch. The bare branch is a from a Memory Box  die titled 'Woodland Branch'.  Hope you like :O)!
