  1. Gail, this is a fun card! Great technique! Love your collage look of your card!

  2. Gail--this is a wonderful card! You did a fantastic job on the faux leather! I find that technique so difficult! TFS

  3. Nice card. Cked out the Faux Leather Technique link you provided and it indicates to use masking tape with embossing powder & heat gun. I do not see that you used those things so would like to know how you achieved the Faux Leather look with your card?
    "Sunshine HoneyBee"

  4. Very pretty card -- I like the embossing folder you used.

  5. Your card is so pretty, I love the shiny faux leather.

  6. OOPS - I put the wrong link for the Faux Leather - the correct link is by Lois at MFP and it is an easy way to do Faux Leather! So Sorry. Enjoy your day.

  7. Thanks for the shout-out to my tutorial. Again, I really like your card!

  8. Absolutely beautiful Gail. Thanks so much for playing along in my "birthday" word play saturday challenge!
