"Little Man" Swap Card

My friend Jen, over at SCS, is hosting a "Man Card" swap; I signed up for the "Little Man" category and this is what I came up with. I knew right away I would use Changito! I thought the bright colors would be a hit with the kids.
The photo doesn't capture all of the detail; I paper pierced a line and then placed the brads in every third piercing. As I'm looking at the photo, it appears the line is a bit wonky.... This is the trouble I sometimes have with brads; I know the pierced line is straight, but the prongs of brads are not always centered. Hence, the wonky line! This is one of the reasons I like the Bella Dots; I can center them evenly.... Don't get me wrong, I love brads too! Sometimes it just depends on the technique you are using. Has anybody else ever had this trouble or is it just me?
Image/Sentiment: Stampendous
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: G.P. White, SU! Yo Yo Yellow and Brilliant Blue, Piggy Tales DP
Embellies: Spare Parts Brads
Extras: Crayola Colored Pencils, Tim Holtz Piercing Ruler, Foam Tape
I need to try to get these in the mail either today or tomorrow so they make the deadline. I am working a couple of 3-11 shifts, so it is throwing everything off just a's been almost 10 years since I worked that shift.
I hope you have a great day; thanks for stopping by!

This is just adorable Angela. Love the blue and yellow together, so bright and fun. Your brad line looks fine to me, but I know what you mean, I always have trouble getting them straight.
