Togetherness at Challenge Heaven

This month (dec) at Challenge Heaven, as the Design Team member I have the theme challenge....
The Theme is create a layout in the theme of 'Togetherness' with this criteria, use a stamped heat embossed element in the background of your page , and a handmade embellishment.
Here is my take on the challenge :
 I have stamped in the bottom left hand corner and up the left hand side of the page and heat embossed using Clear with a gold sparkel added it gives just the right amount of bling but subtle all the same :)
 My hand made embellishment is the Net flower - created with a strip of netting hand sewing a length of vintage lace to it and pulling the cotton to gather it into a rosette type thing adding in a vintage button and then stitching the sides together.  - If there is a call for more info on how to do this, email me / leave a comment and I will consider adding in a tutorial :)
 A little closer on the heat embossing - which is also behind the photo on the top left hand side.
The circles in the back ground were cut from the flipside of a piece of websters pages, these were then screwed up into a ball, inked with Tim Holtz distress Ink, and then spritzed with water, once unfolded and dry the inks blend in together to give a much worn / distressed look.  Just adds that extra bit of shazam to what otherwise were quite dull circles :) lol

Thanks for looking girls, remember to pop on over to Challenge Heaven and take a good look at all the inspiration, why not pop in and do one of the challenges why you are at it :)  Gotta be in it to win it. \
