A Blog Named Hero - Make Your own Embellishment

I've got lot's of home made embellishments, as I'm sure we all do, which I've been meaning to use, but I made a new one, so I hopefully I'll make another card.

So anyway, I noticed on Cecilia's blog that Tim Holtz had a challenge using the tattered flowers die and  since I haven't yet mastered this die, I thought I should have some practice. Mine is different to to Tim's method, because I used DP instead of paint, but I intend to try that for my next attempt.

Here is my card...

I used more of the gorgeous Authentique DP - I got some 1/2 price pads at the last Craft Fair.
The sentiment is from PTI.
The card base is from a stationary store - I love the natural look. Cecilia told me about this shop
Paper Point selling Neenah Solar White paper and when I went there I found they also had lots of Washi and other enticing goodies!

Have a look here if you want to join the fun
at A Blog Named Hero


I forgot to mention that I based this card on the sketch for the Retro Sketch challenge
so I shall enter their challenge too.


  1. Great card Jenny! Sounds like I'm a bad influence on you! Glad you found the shop - they have a discount if you buy 50 sheets.

  2. Gorgeous - love the addition of bakers twine behind the flower. I'm off to investigate the Tim Holtz challenge. I'll email you separately about Thailand.

  3. Beautiful! Great job with the challenge!!! Love your choices of paper as well!

    Thanks for your blog visit too :)
