Hello There Crafty Friends,
I want to let you know that a new challenge starts today at...
The theme is 'Anything Goes'

I used the beautiful  'Avery With Heart Key' for my card.
 I love skeleton keys and used to collect them as a child. 
I think it's pretty neat that the doors in my home still have the skeleton key locks. :)

...For This Card - Step By Step...
Used the distressing tool on the card and patterned paper.
Went around the card and patterned paper with distress ink.
Used the ink blending took to go over the image with distress ink.
Taped the patterned paper onto the card.
Cut a piece of doily tape to go across the card and taped it on.
Taped coffee stained gauge on the left side of the card.
Put foam mounting tape on the back of the image and sentiment, attached to the card.
 Glued the flowers on, then glued a flatback pearl in each flower.
Glued the wooden hearts and three flatback pearls on.
