For Your Eyes Only

Hi Folks,

Its time for another challenge at Try it on Tuesdays, and this time Its All About the Eyes -  Blue, Brown Green, Big or Small - as long as they are a feature on your creation.  We have a new Sponsor for this month - Really Reasonable Ribbons - who are offering our winner a $15. gift cert to spend in their online store

For my piece, I have used an Inkylicious stamp for my main image which was torn and  layered onto a torn CB 'Textile 'embossed mat, the background is also embossed with the same folder.  This card was quite difficult to photograph - I say that because apart from her face, all distressing is Tumbled Glass and Vintage Photo, but somehow it looks quite green!  I felt my card did need a sentiment - sometimes I don't add them and just wait till I decide who its for, anyhow - the words I felt although a little 'James Bond' were also suitable for Love and Valentines,that is until DD came to visit and said - "That's the name of a Strip Club in Newcastle"  .......so, If you live in Newcastle this isn't an invitation!!!
I added a shabby flower, inked and distressed with Tumbled Glass and V Photo!
As usual my very talented teamies have some wonderful inspiration for you, so please pop over here.

I'd just like to say 'hello' to my new followers, and 'Thank You' for being here.
