Manly Monday Woodgrain Happy Birthday card

I used the wood grain paper by The Paper Studio and orange textured cardstock by Coredinations. I bought the sentiment die cut off of eBay and I hated the color so I grunge it up with distress ink. The brads are by Bo Bunny.

I’ve been trying to use my brads and eyelets lately. I have so many of them and they’re taking up space. Plus I have a bunch of nice ones that I should use. Do you have brads and eyelets? Do you use them?

I had 13 posts of these cards and decided to spare you the agony of seeing the same card in different colors. This is my darker red bunch of cards. I do not know all of the supplies manufacturers Sometimes I wonder if company names are important since my supplies are old and I don't have many views to my posts. Oh well. Right?
