inspired by...



Hello!

Ever have one of those cards that starts off for a particular challenge or two and when finished didn't make either?

Here's that card for me:


I had intended on playing along with the gals over at Dynamic Duo...gold & black...but I couldn't seem to do it...then I was going to join the girls over at CAS-ual Fridays with the scoring and well, never got to that either.

This is my grungy tag card inspired by Keisha Campbell...she's big on tags and heat embossing...I should have used the 'ole embossing buddy on it but actually I do like that grungy look.


The top tab is cork from an older Paper Made Bakery kit...LOVE the stuff...so easy to punch out shapes.

Did you notice that I didn't use any of my Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go collection?  I figure I'm okay since I didn't use any other patterned paper {wink}...


My Bloggie friend Annette is having a fun linky party over at her place.  She is one of thee sweetest bloggers!  Go check out the fun over at her place!!!
