Tim Holtz April 2012

Well it has only taken me two weeks, six days, five hours and thirteen seconds to make this tag card to enter into Lord Tim's April 2012 tag challenge.  But I must tell you, I am having tons of fun.  I only wish the colors could be more true to form.


I have used all distressed inks, Tim Holtz tickets, A French script reflection that has been stamped on one of my own embossing folders and a Tim Holtz buttterfly stamp plus Ranger Embossing Powder which I love. Again, this was so much fun!!

I thank you for all your sweet comments.

I am entering this into Tags of 2012 - April
