I had my first day of a 4-day holiday today and I got very little accomplished other than chatting with dear friends from SCS. I am SOOOO okay with that!
So, I ultimately had to knuckle down and make some cards. Here's my challenge card for today's Ways to Use It challenge. I almost NEVER get to play in the weekday challenges, so this was an especial treat for me!
I think the card is rather self-explanatory except that I did use the CE for the scroll and I used three corregaters to create the texture. Regular corregator, wavy corregator and diamond corregator.
Added a heart charm dangled on twine and I'm calling it a card!
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

Great job M. I know what you mean, I can spend more time on the gallery looking and commenting than doing my own work!!! Glad you have some time to play some challenges. I'll be looking forward to it. This card is lovely. Love the heart hanging from the hemp twine, the scrolls, the embossing - it all came together really well!! I've become a fan of hemp twine after I saw it on your seashell card and you sent me some and I've used it. I went and ordered some more!!! Thanks M and I'll keep a lookout for you this WHOLE holiday weekend!! TFS!

How beautiful. Through my eyes, I see something very special about this card: It's got elegance, beauty and creativity all blended together so wonderfully well. DMM, this is one of those jaw dropping cards for me. Just exquisite.
