Sketch 7 Challenge

Made this card for the monthly challenge at Cardmaking Friends Forum. I loved the triple embossing so used that on the three tiles with my favourite Pearl Lustre embossing powders. Then stamped with an oriental stamp using Gold Brilliance Ink Pad and added another layer of clear embossing powder to seal. Went around edges of tile with Krylon pen. The papers are DCVW Far East stack and have distressed the top paper with Tim Holtz Old Paper Distress Inks. Used a small leaf stamp over top of card. Tried out my Galaxy Markers for the first time on this card and think they are fab, have used them on the bottom right corner to highlight the tree and edged the ripped paper with black at the top and bronze at the bottom. Love the challenges, at times I have so many cards to do that my mind get bogged down with idea's and I end up all in a faffle and dont do any. At least with the challenges, your mind is set as to what needs to be done and I can just get on with it. So many more challenges I want to do this week, only time will tell! (LOL). I've taken this late at night so click on the image and you'll see a bigger picture.
