The Fabric of Our Lives DT Post #113

Well this was a challenge all right. Thanks Dorcas... Fabric... I don't sew, so I didn't have any fabric in the house... so I was at my wits end trying to think of what to do... and then I remembered I had these fabric covered brads, now here's the kicker...Oh Where Oh where can they be...come on ladies when was the last time we used brads on a project and now that I found them, I had to match paper to the brads, so I found this old paper pad from My Minds Eye... and this is my take on this weeks theme "The Fabric of Our Lives"....

Anyway, I used this image called Skateboard Schoolboy which you can find HERE. It is for a teenagers birthday who is skateboard enthusiast.

So here is a picture of the Card:
