I've been missing in action pretty much all last week. I missed all of my usual challenges and more. I was trying to get over pneumonia and then I spent a few days in and around Washington DC. I couldn't even get to my email because the Wifi in the hotel was really weak. However, now I'm back! I've got a lot to catch up on, so here goes.
I'm back to my challenges. This card was done with a few challenges in mind. The challenge for Compendium of Curiosities II was tissue wrap flowers from p. 38 of Tim Holtz's book. This week's challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  Kraft Journal had an anything goes challenge. Simon Says Stamp and Show wants depth of distress.
To create my card I started with a panel of Core'dinations paper. I dry embossed it with a numbers folder from Cuttlebug and then sanded the raised numbers. I used my Distrezz-it-all to distress the edges. I used walnut stain distress ink along the edges. The flower was made from Tim Holtz's tissue paper according to his technique directions. I added ripe persimmon distress ink to the edges and a Webster's Pages embellishment to the center. The clock was die cut from black cardstock. The butterfly (top and base) are from Webster's Pages. The simple sentiment is from Tim's Chit Chat stickers.
