Today I did a quick card for the Big Idea Festival Day 1 Challenge.  The "Big Idea" was to Make Someone's Day by writing and mailing an actual note written with an actual pen.  My own spin was to use embellishments I already had done.  When I have leftovers from projects or playing with new stuff, I put  them in the accordian file shown here.  For this card I rifled through my stash and I also grabbed a pre-made card base from My Mind's Eye - love those things.

This is a card I made for the "Who's the Boss?" challenge over at the Hero Arts Blog. The background is kraft paper dry embossed with a woodgrain pattern then painted with Twinkling H2O's.  The Hero Arts "Small Metal Fourish" was heat embossed with Zing metallic copper.  The background covered with Twinkling H2O's also.  Finally the leaves were die cut / embossed with Spellbinders' "Assorted Leaves" and Twinkling H2O's makes an appearance yet again!  Before "twinkling" I emphasized the veins of the leaves with a gold uniball pen.
