Hello

Hi friends!  Happy Wednesday!  I'm popping in with a super quick card I made during nap time the other day.  I had some scraps of this Park Bench paper on my desk and it reminded me of a tag I had made quite some time ago that has just been sitting in my scrap drawer waiting for the right card.  Love when I get to use something that's been around a while!


The tag and the sentiment are from the Tag Time set and stamped onto a Tagged Rectangle Die.  The leafy sprig comes from the Sunny Days set and I added a little shadowing with a grey copic marker.  I glued a black circle punch to my tag and then punched out the hole with my crop-a-dile for a hole re-inforcer (Remember those things you used to lick and stick around hole punches?  Or does that really date me? {grin}) look.  A button, twine and ribbon were added, and I did color the button with a Copic to get the right shade of yellow.

I used the Flourished Trim Die for an accent across my dp panel, then added some interest with black liquid pearls across it.  I finished off the card with a Chevron embossing folder on the base and a couple black sequins and gold rhinestones.  I just love that Flourished Trim Die and it's one of the items marked 30% off this month!!!
