And I'm OFF........

You will need to forgive me.....time TOTALLY got away from me this week as I prepared to go to CHA....yeah, I'm just a TAD EXCITED!! So sadly, my post will be short and sweet......just like me....hehehe!!

The challenge this week at

EMBOSSING!!

For my card, I began with a piece of Distress Cardstock which I then embossed, sanded, applied a bit of  Tissue Tape quite randomly. I then colored it with Distress Stain, brushed on some Perfect Pearls and finished off the card face with some drybrushed paint. I then proceeded to stamp on it and embellish it with do dads I found laying around on my work surface!

Added extras.......
a Memo pin with beads on it.
A Grungeboard diecut Butterfly, painted, stamped on and inked.
Finished off with a hand crocheted flower with a Lock and Key held on with a jump ring!!
 
So, while I hanging out at CHA....hoping to meet some of the girlies from Simon Says Stamp.....you put your thinking cap on......and whip up a wonderful creation. Don't forget to link it up to The Blog......you could be this weeks random winner of.....
