Using my new toy!

Well, first off I have to say WOO HOO! Because I love winning things, and I won at Word Art Wednesday last week :) A big thanks to the ladies over there, and to Lisa's Altered Art who sponsored the challenge. I am so excited to use my prizes from Lisa, you should hop over and see her Fabulous altered art!  And my second WOO HOO of the day is that I finally got to use my new Fiskars edger thingy. To be honest I didn't even know that they existed until a few weeks ago, my niece was over for a craft day and asked if I had one, up till then I assumed that there were just some talents that weren't meant for me... Like tearing paper, it never looked right... Go figure, but now I have my nifty new tool!  So here is my first try at torn edges :)

 I used paper from My Minds Eye, and the Scripture was a sticker from my stash. The flower is home-made and I used buttons that I have had so long I don't remember if they were for crafting or if there are lonely shirts just waiting to be mended somewhere.  I am entering this card into the following challenges

Order of the Opus Gluei - Pink Colour Challenge
