One more Christmas Card

Here's a closeup of my SketchMania for this week. I wanted to point out some details.

The challenge over at SimonSaysStamp is to use a Lord Tim Technique.. lol. and I feel like I always use Tim's techniques anyways.. so it was pretty easy to make this one fit.. Tons of layers, distressing, using found objects and making my own embellishments!!

I used a kraft base from JilliBean, paper from KaiserCraft and a piece of music sheet paper from an old book I have laying around. There's tons of vintage photo distress ink going on, as well as black soot distress powder.. the two combined make for a great dark brown. The corrugated cardboard is a found piece of recycled packaging that my husband always nabs me from his work ♥. That IS a small strip of Tim's photo reel ribbon. I made the flower out of KaiserCraft paper and clear glitter, there's a pearl in the middle with black curled zebra wire. I found some gorgeous trim sold by the spool at walmart for about $2.. nabbed that up and used it behind the flower. I used the same pearls as the center for the "pin" with a dark brown bead that I glued onto a copper head pin. OH! and the stamp is a gorgeous collage piece by Inkadinkadoo that I got from Miss Purnima G!!
