So I needed to make some thank you cards yesterday and didn't have a lot of time to play with different textures and colors. I started out cutting the dress form from and the spool of thread out of thin chipboard. Then using an elastic wire ribbon I tied five lengths of tulle to it and tied around waist. I then folded a black piece of tulle several times and draped it at bodice securing in back with tape. I then placed extra small gems around neck. I wrapped thin ribbon around the spool and secured with Tim Holtz Trinkets pin. Next I cut a Bingo card from scrapbook paper and a 43/4"x6 3/4"  piece of background words paper. I attached to 5x7 craft card. I then secured each piece with ultimate glue to card!

Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers Challenge

I had so much fun creating yesterday! First I must say I made this book of curiosities from a kit I bought through
Isn't it fun? But I felt it needed something more so when Tim's challenge came up I thought that would be a perfect dimensional element on my book! Well I used multiple different textures and even loved how the metal tape flowers turned out but the one I chose for the book was made from the packing my new dishes came in!  That's right! I used my vagabond machine I got for Christmas, along with distress stains to color. Forgive me but I had to create a blog to post a picture so I didn't take pictures of each stage but lesson learned I won't let that happen again! I hope you had as much fun as I did!
