Thanks - using packaging!

Supplies:  Tim Holtz Trimmings Packaging, Crackle Accents - 
Ranger Industries,  HA Thanks sentiment, Staz on ink, Distress Ink - 
Walnut stain and tea dye - Ranger, Blending tool, Papermania blue/aqua 
textured cardstock, 7gypsies clip, Fiskars Upper Crest punch, Docrafts Kraft 
card blank, Fiskars notebook border punch, pop dots and adhesive.

You will all very readily recognise Tim Holtz's flourish on the card above.  This is the backing from one of the packets of goodies I purchased recently that I decided to reuse!.  I inked around the edges, added crackle accents to the flourish, set aside to dry, assembled the rest of the card and love how it turned out.

I am entering it into the Inspiration Emporium Monthly Challenge - packaging!  Check out the Inspiration Journal for full deets here.

Thanks for stopping by - hope you have a wonderful day.
