Our Friendship Tips the Scale

Thanks for visiting me, friends.  Your stops by my blog mean SO much to me, and the comments and support you give me are such a blessing and an encouragement.  I do try to get by everyone's blogs (if there's a link or trail I can follow) because you all inspire me so much as well.  That's how it works, right?
This was a "just for fun" card - Design Team assignments, no specific reason why I "had to" make this.  I just knew that I wanted to play along in a couple of challenges, and so that's what I kept in mind as I designed.  I used a Tim Holtz Embossing Folder and a Stampin' Up Stamp Set.  I inked the background with Speckled Egg and Tumbled Glass Oxide Inks.
I just love texture that the embossing folder gives the paper.  I used a Paper Sweeties tag die for the small tag and I tied some Solid Pink Baker's Twine on the tag.  I added small bow tied with light teal/turquoise Seam Binding.  I also did a bit of machine stitching in black.  That's about it.  I'll be sharing my card in the challenges listed below.  Thanks again for visiting.

Colorful Options - August: Tranquil Turquoise - I used a turquoise patterned paper and I inked my white cardstock with turquoise oxide inks to create the background.  I also tied a small piece of light turquoise seam binding and I colored the scale a very light turquoise.
Can You Handle the Pressure Challenge Blog - August: Anything Goes w/Optional Twist Beach

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog - Simon Says "Emboss It" - so, I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder for the background and tag.
