Better Late than never..My take on Tim's day 7 tag

Well, I haven't put away all of  my Christmas papers, and stamps yet. I didn't get my Tim 12 days of Christmas tags done before Christmas, and so here it is January 3 rd, 2011 and I am still working on a Christmas project. 
The stores have Valentines and St. Patrick Day merchandise out, and today, I couldn't believe it...I saw chocolate Cadbury Easter Eggs for sale in the grocery store.  Hopefully, I will feel well enough to finish the rest of my tags this week. I went to the doctors this morning, and I am now on antibiotics.

In my craft room I came across a sheet of wood grained cardstock that I bought many years ago at C T and Nee's stamp store in Raynham. I use to teach classes at that store. I still miss that stores closing.
The store carried an awesome variety of cardstock. I wish I would have bought more of the wood grain cardstock when I had the chance.

When Tim first posted his day 7 tag I was planning on using the wood grained cardstock, but then after Christmas I found Tim's wood grained texture fade embossing folder on sale. I decided to use the folder with the wood grained cardstock with the cardstock.  I smooshed a vintage photo ink over the raised areas to accent the raised wood grain. Here is a piece of the cardstock that I have left.

I love how you emphasized the wood grain, and the end result is stunning -- so delicate and lovely! I know it's a poinsettia, but a pretty red flower with the word "Joy" works for me all year long.

That's beautiful Elaine! Glad to hear you are feeling better.

Elaine - it is really lovely! I think the poinsettia really stands out against the wood grain. Very nice!
