Little Tangles #21 and Make it Monday again

I like this color combination at Little Tangles yellow, pink and grey

First I thought the challenge was over, but that turned out to be not true. I wanted to use my brand new Christmas set- Merry and Bright - a gift from my fried Ren-Yi - we finally managed to get together - more on that later....

Here is the card I made - had to be nontraditional colors, but I like how it turned out:

I used silver metallic embossing powder for the sentiment and the rod - or however you call that long thingy. I used some Stickles on the ornament and the little star. It just fits well with the sentiment. I also used thin strips of silver metallic paper on the ides to "frame" it.

I am also linking this up with this weeks Simon Says challenge - Anything goes


I met Ren-Yi through the Neat &Tangles Birthday bash. We discovered we both live in New Jersey - not too far apart and we finally got together for a lovely lunch an fun afternoon.


I wanted to give you a little update on the home-made paste for Make it Monday. he paste holds up beautifully - it is velvety and pliable. It does not chip off - that was I initially worried about. Here is the second background I made - I finally finished the card:

I used various punches for the greenery, the rosette is a die from Die-namics, the embossing plate and sentiment are Papertrey.

The recipe for the dimensional paste is HERE

Have a great evening!
