Tag......You're It! and Just Us Girls #231 - Technique

Wow! Two of my friends are hosting challenges this week.  I am so lucky to know them and share crafty news with them, how could I not participate!  They have helped me to grow so much in this last year.  I love the fellowship that we have because of our love of paper crafting.  It has opened a new and exciting world for me.  Ok, enough, On to the card.  Yes I said card, as I made one for the two challenges.  Hehe! 

The Mod Squad Challenge is Tag....Your it!      Just put a tag on it. 
The challenge at JUGs is Technique and Sharyn chose.......Weathered Wood.

This card was fun in, that I used a lot to get the shabby look that I was going for.
Some of the effects are pieces that I had left over from experimenting with techniques.  Like the emboss resist butterfly, with spray shine.  Don't you love it when you can do that?

Here is what I used on this shabby card. 
 Sand and Apple Green CS from Gina K.
dimensional paste and a heart stencil
Embossed resist technique on the tag with chartreuse Color Shine
Stamp sets are Gina K, Spring Mix, Birthday Greetings and Master Butterfly.
Cute little dragonfly charm!
