These Moments

Hi there, everyone!  Thanks for stopping by today.  I'm posting a card I made last night using some sweet Crate Paper products.  This one isn't for any Design Team assignment;   I just had some time on my hands, and I grabbed a  bin of Crate Paper supplies and made a fun card.  I used a Crate Paper ephemera post card (from Oh Darling), a Crate Paper patterned paper (pink), and Crate Paper stickers, ephemera, chipboard pieces, flags, and sentiments.
I also added a length of Ivory Burlap String that I bundled up underneath the banner/flags, and I topped it with a decorative pin/flair from Etsy.  I ran a length of Cream Tulle trim across my card, but everything else is Crate Paper.
I love combining different colors and patterns together, and I also love adding (sometimes too many) lots of extra touches.  I added some vintage scotch tape in a few places, and I also used Spun Sugar Distress Ink by Tim Holtz on the edges of the patterned paper.
I'm off to blog land to check out all the fun challenges, get inspired by checking out all my favorite blogs, and to leave a few comments.  I'm sure glad that you stopped by today.  I can't thank you enough.  Have a blessed day!


CropStop - Linky Party #28/May - I used Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink, Tombow Adhesive, and May Arts Ivory Burlap String.
