Give me a Toile Tissue please!

Playing 'catch-up' this week-end and this is a card for Day 168 - Touch of Toile at 365 Cards. The picture is not too good, sorry about that, it's Saturday and I probably drank a little extra coffee! When I saw this challenge I thought I had some DP with a Toile design, but then, when I hit my ribbon and wrapping paper to make a Thursday's card, Day 168 - Touch of Toile, I found some Toile tissue paper and went "WOW" look what I've got! I really did say "WOW out loud! Since it is tissue, I took my card base outside and sprayed it with adhesive. Then I used my brayer to flatten it out and make it stick. To look at the card IRL you can't even tell it is tissue paper. Well it worked great, then I couldn't decide how else to decorate since I wanted it to be a CAS card. Finally found organza ribbon to go with it and discovered that if I use my heat gun the ribbon will curl up! Then I put the sentiment on it and it pretty well covered up all the curly ribbon!


Some more cards to post so I can finish laundry and clean the house, you know, that stuff that is NOT too high on MY priority list! Have a great day...
