Simon Says Distress!

I guess that this weeks Simon Says challenge could not be more perfect for me - I distress (almost) everything! *LOL*

I am not sure that I am totally satisfied with this card, but I think that the image is soooo cool, so I decided to go for it anyway.

This very cool house is a drawing from World of Warcraft, and I would just love to live in a house like that. This is the kind of house I think Harry Potter will live in when he grows up. Think of all the magic!

Ok, I am dreaming myself away now *LOL*

The very skilled Simon Says DT members are featuring Tim Holtz products this week. I have certainly had mine in use to. Not that I have a lot of it.

I am particularly satisfied with my faux metal flower. Isn't it cool? I cut out this flower by hand, embossed it once with gold embossing and then gave it a coat of Aged Mahogany Distress embossing. The leafs is some free vector images that I printed, cut out by hand and embossed with gold.

The "gold" knobs on my keyhole is just som regular office brads. I do like the keychain ;o)

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I am celebrating my fathers birthday today, and I am spending easter at my parents home. I will also spend som time at my aunts craftingroom. My poor aunt. She is so tidy, and then she invites me over... I will probably give her a hartattac 'cause I am a big mess!

Now dig out all your Tim Holtz goodies and go banans with distressing. I can't wait to see what you all make!

Take care!

There you go being awesome again! I LOVE this card, and you're right-- that house image is beyond cool!

Happy birthday to your dad (and good luck to your aunt! I don't think any of my relatives would allow me anywhere NEAR their workspace)!
