I Stink At Naming Blog Posts!

Here is a card that I made using some new paper from DCWV that is called Tattered Time. Now I am one of those impulse shoppers when it comes to my craft supplies....I mean how can you go wrong??? You see something and you buy don't second guess your self. Right? You gals all do the same thing RIGHT? Please agree or my husband will think I have the problem! LOL Now seriously I really do shop that way...I will walk into Joann's or Micheal's and just buy what I want....there are a few times that I will walk in with a purpose but usually it is just let's see what's new. 

So I walked into Joann's and saw Tattered Time and thought that this will work perfect with all of the "Steampunk" images that are fast becoming popular. I had all of these visions in my head of all the digis I had that will work. THEN I got home. Don't get me wrong I still love the papers but it seemed like I couldn't get anything to work together! So this is my first try using this paper:

I kept it pretty simple...wanting the papers to pop a bit without a lot on it. I added some buttons from my stash, colored "Ariana" from Anita Be Stamping with copics, and used star gel pen for her wings. Still not sure if I like it. Hope you do!!! HUGS!

These are the challenges I am hoping to enter:

I think it is perfect with your image.Adorable card
Please, impulse buying especially with paper is right up my alley!
I am ashamed to ADMIT how much paper I really own- had projects in mind for most of it at one time.
