For you


Today I am sharing a card with you, made using a Tim Holtz paper stack.
I stopped buying papers nearly two years ago and still the pile never seems to get smaller.
I made a textured base, using an embossing folder and spray inks, then layered it up distressing the edges with the old blunt scissors,
I even fussy cut  a piece to add interest to the bottom corner.
As yet there is no sentiment, this way it could be used for any  occasions,
 when I need a card ready and waiting..

It is the second week of the current challenge at Try it on Tuesdays,
and the Top 5 winner from the last challenged will be announced there  today.

Thank you for calling to see what I have been making
, I always appreciate the comments you leave for me.

  2. A stunning layout Yvonne and the papers are really beautiful, especially the bottom left where you have decoupaged the flower.
    Like you I have lots and lots of paper too.....in fact I am getting a bit more picky abut the new releases that I purchase too.........or maybe thats because I am running out of space in my craft room !!!!

    Have a great week

  17. I only ever bought 4 sheets for a specific project & a mixed pack of Indian papers from Lakeland .....I still seem to accumulate more though!

    This lively creation reminds me that I need to make some blank "all occasions" cards too....
