Collage card for mom

Good morning everyone!

Today I wanted to share a collage type of card with you... It's my first attempt and I'm pretty happy with it but next time I think I'll use Tim Holtz Collage Medium products because I didn't get the results I wanted with Mod Podge and crackle paint. 
Anyway... the background was created with several Tim Holtz Pocket cards, the flowers and butterfly are from a Tim Holtz Ephemera package. Everything was distress with Walnut stain DI and the sentiment was cut out of gold painted cardstock with MFT dies. The tag was cut with a Tim Holtz die and to finish it up I added a twine bow.

Thanks so much for stopping by... I'll see you soon!

Absolutely stunning, Tammy! I love the way you've combined those Tim Holtz Pocket cards with the flowers, butterflies and twine. The distress inks really pulled everything together and give it a vintage look. Great work. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

This collage look is stunning. I think it looks flawless even though it might not have the finish you were aiming for.

I think it turned out GREAT!!! I completely agree with you about the Modge Podge and Crackle, I did the same thing and came to the same conclusion, lol. But, this still looks wonderful! Thanks for playing along with 4 Crafty Chicks, hope to see you again!
