Today's Second Challenge

OK, this card is much more successful than the last. Oh well, the fun is in trying to make stuff. It is actually so funny, because I make cards (some I love and some I hate) but then I just move on, they sit in a pile until I put them in my for sale bin. I don't do well with multiples of the same card, because I want to make something new. Anyway, I digress....

So this card is for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge- http://flourishesnewsletter.blogspot.com/2009/03/timeless-tuesday_23.html. This week it is hosted by Betty Wright- I love Betty! And she has challenged me to emboss something. So today, I was blurfing and found a great "faux tile" card made by Mary Fish- http://www.stampinpretty.com/2009/03/happiness-is-caseing-beate.html -so I CASEd this card idea and went with it.

After I made my tiles and did my peircing, I decided to leave out a tile. I then used a transparency sheet and put it through with my birds and blooms die. I topped that with a some glitter, put a (insert magic word...) BUTTON on and and tied to my twill tape. The little tag is stamped and embossed with silver embossing powder. The tag is regal rose (main colors are cameo coral and kiwi) because I didn't have any of the Lots of Tags dies in the coral color, so after stamping and embossing, I brushed the tag in my coral ink. I am happy with this card- yeah!
