Over The Hill and Bringing Bran!

Ever in need of Funny Over the Hill card?  Well, look no further!  I literally laughed out loud when I read this Bringing Bran Birthday Greeting (K1086) from DRS Designs.   

I cut out the Bringing Bran Birthday Greeting using a Nestability die.  I sponged silver ink over the wording while it was still in the die. DRS Designs also has a background stamp perfect for all the Over The Hill cards you'll ever need to make. The Old Age Background (H312) was stamped in black ink and I distressed the edges with the silver ink as well.  This card was embellished using black and white plaid ribbon from The Paper Studio, petite brads by Recollections, and I also used an EK Success paper punch to decorate the upper and lower borders of my card front.  

Due to the occassion, I thought it would be best to create this card in black and gray, as most Over The Hill Party themes are.  With phrases in the background like "Gummer," "Ancient," "Senior Citizen," and "Older than Dirt," this card is sure to make people laugh!

Thanks for stopping by today!
