Default WT140 - Unique Brads

Good morning! Sorry the challenge is a little later today. It was a crazy morning! I did get up at 6...honest!

Today's challenge is one I hope you'll have fun playing and I'm pretty sure you'll all be able to play. The challenge was suggested to my by MrsBoz to use Unique Brads. These are the special ones...not the mini ones. We've had a brad challenge before but this one is a little more specific. Anything unique as we tend to hoard those! Right?! So....pull out your corduroy brads, embroidered brads, ornate metal brads, Jumbo Brads, Build-a-brads...whatever you can find that inspires you and have some fun!

Please remember to put WT140 in your keywords section and post a link back here when you are finished. All are welcome to play...the more the merrier! Feel free to make more than one card...have fun with this! If you'd like to submit an idea for a WT challenge, I'd love to hear from you...just PM me!

The Samples...

MrsBoz - Jumbo Delight

My Sample - Vintage Crackled Bridge

WT140 Gallery Submissions

Have a great day! Have fun with those brads!

You mean I have to use them? This should be easy for me. I'm hoarding right now.

I would think that's the best option if you don't have anything. (For those of you wondering how to make them, see Roxies sample from yesterdays sketch challenge.)

Now how did you know I have some Jumbo pebble brads that match the Blush dp that I've had stashed and haven't used yet?!!!

You are brilliant, Julia!

Oh, fun. I almost used my build-a-brads yesterday, but just couldn't put 3 of those on one card - YUP! I'm a hoarder! Thanks, Julia.

Here is mine. The brads don't match perfectly but they do not look this off in real life. I could not get a good picture but you get the point. I used a bunch of stamp sets on this for such a simple card!

OMG! I love your card - I love the vintage look you've created - I have those brads and they are beautiful. It's so funny how you talk about hording - I'm so afraid to use something I like cause it might be gone then so I don't use it - i.e. The Pretties Kit from SU, the K & Co. Fabric Brads - thanks for a great challenge!!!!

Preparing for a workshop for Friday - hope I can squeeze some time in to play!!
