Only a TAD?! Late........

My absolute humble apologies for SUCH a late post!
Would you belive that I have actually had this card done for weeks??????

I have no other excuse than it being rather busy week and it just slipped right through the cracks, even though I was totally ready, AND reminded aswell.

I am so sorry, and I sincerely hope that you think my little contribution to the 2nd in the international inkers series was worth a tiny wait.
So without further hesitation, here is this editions kit!

Hailing from the USA, Catherine has supplied us with an adorable kit. So adorable in fact, that I literally ripped the package open & whipped up my card the very next day.

What's in the kit?
- K & Company Urban Rhapsody pattern papers.
- May Arts Web ribbon in turquoise and cream
- Chipboard swirls
- blue buttons
- SU! Hodgepodge Hardware (in pewter) which she altered with Adirondack metalic Mixatives (in copper)
- The image is "Bashful from Sugar nellie, designed by Diane Duda

Here is the finished card. I decided get some good square footage from the papers and such, so I opted for a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" square, and the easel card fold. The papers were so fun to work with, as everything went together so well. The embellishments were altered so perfectly!!

In order to match the embellishments, I decided to do a little altering myself. I used the chipboard swirl and broke out my very neglected Copper Metallic ink pad and went to town covering the entire piece. I immediately sprinkled clear embossing powder over top and set it with my heat tool It looks fantastic and very similar to metal.

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I'm sure you have already been.. but if you haven't... make sure you visit the other inkers!
