Tinfoil and Blackboard

I haven't posted since Sunday because I have had no energy. I guess two surgeries and then a proceedure on friday wiped me out. Then I worked too much last week. So I decided to baby myself a litte. I am doing better. I am learning to say no which is very hard for me. I am waiting to feel like a new woman again :) On to better things!!!!!!!

Here is my card for the SCS 169 challenge. I don't know what I was thinking. Can I blame it on being tired???? I decided to use tinfoil. Yep you read right tinfoil. I ran it through my cuddlebug. Worked great until I tried to attach it. Pretty delicate. Then I punched it and put it on the flowers. I hear it sharpens your punches too.

weStamp group met yesterday. I live to far away to attend. SAD!!!!! They did the blackboard technique so not to feel left out I tried it on this card. I think I will try this again. I like the way it looks. I used my Baroque Motifs stamp set from SU. I got 7 new sets of stamps yesterday in the mail. YEAH!!
Now I just need embellishments. I always "need" SU stuff.

Mauna, what a FUN card! A tip on the foil ... wrap it around cardstock before running it through the bug ... it won't be so delicate to work with.
