365 Cards - #168 - Touch Of Toile

Today over at 365 Cards the challenge was Toile!!! I almost kicked the bucket on the spot!! What in the world was Toile???? Had absolutely no clues whatsoever, nada, zilch, zero, the big nought!!! So after sleeping on it or should I say sulking on it I decided to do what any self respecting card maker would do and went and did an image search on google. What I came up with was the print you now see on my card. No fuss no embellishments other than ribbon, just TOILE!! I thought the image was busy enough and effective enough to stand on it's own. So from a sheer panic to the finished product. . . .nice!! Now Pam you have to stop giving this girl a heart attack. . .you know I am getting over the flu, nothing to hard or strenuous, just nice and easy not TOILE!!!!!! Just kidding.


Okay now that I have that off my chest because I have other nasties taking prime position there, lol I am going over to my daughters today to spend some quality time with the grandchildren and my daughter of course.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Supplies: SU Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock. Spellbinders Labels One (I have waited sooooo long to be able to put that one in lol) Black ribbon from stash. Image from the net. SU Basic Black stamp pad. Sentiment from unknown company. Kaisercraft rhinestones.

Ha ha, I had many of the same thoughts, before thinking that maybe I had some toile paper in my bin! Lol... Your card turned out just perfect and I'm so glad you are feeling well enough to go see your daughter! Hug those grandbabies for me!

Ha! I almost used that exact image from the internet! I love the simplicity of your card - and the way you've used the red crystals as the perfect punch! Lovely. :D
