Good Morning All!! I figured that today is such a super busy day that I should really post my entry for today now. I was hoping to get an early start on today's limited supply challenge before my girls were up but for some reason my computer says there is a broken link. I can get anywhere but there. I guess someone is trying to tell me something, like get other things done today that need to be done. I can't help is an addiction!

Before I share my project for today I wanted to share some blog candy that is the sweetest ever not just because of the goodies offered but because of the sweet generosity of Heather who is trying to help a friend in need. This blog candy is for a worthy cause. Please hop on over to Heather's blog for more details!!! Not only is she fabulously talented she is super sweet. Hop on over and you will see why!!!

The card I am going to share with you today is for yesterday's TLC212 Foil It Challenge and Wednesday's Sketch Challenge 222. I used Our Daily Bread design's New Release "Love" I had originally planned on calling it "Foiled love because of the challenge and the foil paper but I decided it was slightly inappropriated for a wedding card. lol! The Love set is a perfect set for inspirational wedding or anniversary cards and the foil paper I have been hoarding was perfect. The foil dp is from Brenda Walton's Peppermint Stick. As you can see, this card would never fit in a limited supply challenge. Once I got started, I just had to add more and more elegant embellishments. First I had a K&Co. Die Cut tag. I traced the outline onto a piece of K&Co. Glitter Paper. I stamped the verse from Our Daily Bread Design's Love set on a piece of white CS. cut out a rectangle slightly smaller than the tag, rounded the edges with my corner rounder punch from EK Success, and dry embossed the verse with the wrong side up so it became textured but not so textured that you could not read the verse. I punched holes around the tag and laced a thread of beads from Michael's bridal department. The bigger butterfly is a Blue Moon charm which was silver. I embossed it in gold instead. The front of the tag has a hole in it that had white sheer gold ribbon threaded through and a thread of faux pearls tied with a piece of gold cording. The hole is then covered with two prima flowers and a beautiful pearl button I bought at a fabric store. The lace is one of my frugal buys that I have been using a lot lately. The yummy velvet is so rich!!! It is distributed from Prima Marketing and I bought it on sale at Michaels. The picture does not even begin to show the lushness of the ribbon and lace against the foil paper. If you notice, I sewed on my card. I was able to get my sewing machine working again!!!! Woo Hoo!! It still is not liking metallic thread but it sews with normal thread!!

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Love
Paper: K&Co. Red Glitter paper, Shimmer Red Bazzill, Brenda Walton Peppermint Stick Foil DP
