I can't believe how often this happens. Tuesday Throwdown challenge for the week is paper tearing and I just made this card yesterday:
Creative minds just think alike--often at the same time!!LOL!
Actually, I got the corner of the paper caught in something and the corner tore off. So I thought why not tear the other edge. Then I sponged the edges with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink. The DPs and ribbon are from SU. The candle stamp is Hero Arts. I just stamped on several scraps of DP and then cut out the candles and glued them over the stamp design. You never know where you will find inspiration. This sentiment is cut from a shopping bag from Silver Dollar City Branson, MO. The bag is full of "antique, Victorian" designs. I'm sure I will use more of it.


  1. Very pretty card Donna. I like your candle stamped on different papers ;) Thanks for sharing with us at TT this week!

  2. You got your Tim Holtz on with this wonderful candle card and paper tearing. Great recycling with paper bag sentiment. Recently I used some of a Neiman Marcus Rum cake pkging for some rain boots for a bird I made on an altered minialbum.
