For another project for my ACOT Revel for this month, I used the Melissa Frances big envelope and tag book to create a 'tribute' to my good friends. I am blessed as I ran out of tags/envelopes/pockets before I ran out of people who love me and whom I love. Off to order another set of these!

Each month at A Cherry on Top, the members of the Creative Teams each post a challenge. I do a monthly altered object one. I try to challenge the gals on the message board to use common household objects in new ways through altering.
This month my challenge was to use tissue paper to create an embellishment or paper or card .
To make mine, I crunched up some patterned paper and placed it on a precut card that I sprayed with an adhesive. I used a brayer over the paper and a gold stamp pad over the crinkles that resulted to add some interest and texture.
The flower is 3 circles rough cut and pinched from the back. I scrunched the edges of each layer and put a brad through the center to keep the layers together. This is a general occasion card.
Check out the rest of the challenges. And say hello to our newest creative design team member, Janet Miller who is joining us with her signature stitching, her amazing journaling and her keen eye for color and design. Congrats pal!
