love looks not with the eyes . . .

This is a wedding shower card. I wasn't planning
on doing all that I did with this, it just
HAPPENED. It was as if I had to use everything
in reach; not sure what came over me!

There's misting and masking, stamping, distress
inky sanded edges, German scrap, rub-ons, Prima
flowers (spray painted gold), a vellum tag, and
bits of this and that.

The flower money clip can be taken out and used as a
bookmark. You can really see the masking on the inside;
I used my favorite plastic doily and gold spray paint.
Yes, I have a favorite plastic doily--don't act like you
don't have a favorite-something-weird, we all know you do!

That plastic doily masking technique goes right along
with Challenge Up Your Life's latest challenge . . .
as well as Charisma Cardz wedding/anniversary challenge.
At Samuel Taylor's Crafts, there's also the "distress it"
challenge, with Tim Holtz dies as the prize.
That rhymes.

I AM easily amused, you know . . .

Oh, Gerri, I feel your pain.
