I just completed my first tapestry technic and it was fun, fun, fun. I would definitely do it again.
I titled this card *Thomas*, who is our son in law and he is a British Isles citizen. We went to visit our dd and sil in Ireland a few years ago. The country side is green, and more green and still more green. Just beath taking beautiful country. Well, when I got started with today's challenge I choose three Irish greens, d m l. Had no idea where I was going when I got started. Picked up Celtic Knots and tried to stamp in white on the greens. Looked good before I embossed but you could hardly see the white after the embossing was completed. But I still liked the effect and went with it. Embossed the Celtic Knot in copper on white and backed with Yoyo yellow and brillant blue and used copper brads. It is not unusual to see Irish homes with blue and yellow painted doors. Put metallic copper paper and chocolate chip together with copper brads to strap it all together.
I am going to use this card for Thomas' next birthday.

Being from Scotland, the celtic knot really caught my eye! Your card came together beautifully. Love all the greens. Scotland and Ireland are very similar landscape wise and you are right about it being so green! Thanks for sharing. I am sure your sil will love his card. Great job on the challenge!!
