Many Thanks!

Have you ever gotten what seemed like a great creative idea for a card layout, then sat down to put it together – only to find that it just wasn't happening?  Oh well . . .

  . . . I guess that's part of the fun, yes?  This card bears not the slightest resemblance to what I originally had in mind.  But I like it, especially since I had fun using my two favorite embellishments.  One of these is UTEE which is scattered on top with no ink used as a binder – heat from beneath to melt the powder.  The other is Heat & Fix nail heads – the small gold dots which are randomly attached here.  So quick and easy, and those puppies are stuck permanently.  They come in metallic and in crystal styles with a wide range of colors.  Lotsa fun for sure . . .
