I was so excited to get "Bradilicious today"!!  Here is my card for the challenge!


I SOO loove this little guy from my Winter Eskimo stamp set! I HAD to use it, especially because I wanted to make a more masculine card since it seems we can never have enough of those on hand!  I decided to go along with the "manly grungy" theme for my background panel, which I embossed with my cuttlebug embossing folder and then sprayed it using a couple of my Tattered Angels sprays which I have been neglecting for years and I SOOO love them!!

I decided to keep the rest of my card pretty simple, and I used my Watercolor Wonder Crayons to color my image, and I keptthe coloring pretty loose and "mooshy" (yes, new technical term!) to give it some texture. 

It was so much fun to use up a bunch of my brads (considering I have about a thousand) and I am SURE you guys own them by the pound too, so I hope you'll play along and get some of those babies used up!!  If you decide to play along, leave me a link to your creation! I'd love to see your fabu-creations!!

Don't forget to visit Lori's blog to get some more Bradilicious inspiration!!
