Whatcha got around the house?

Hey all and happy Tuesday! Last week I decided to play along with Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday gals and I thought -- heck why not make it two weeks in a row? This week's challenge is all about finding something around the house and using it on your card! This one kind of threw me for a loop. I have to admit!

On to my creation! For starters, I have a confession to make. I designed this card using a real, life bottle cap. But, come to find out -- it is a lot harder to get good results from a real bottle cap than it is one of those embellishments you can buy and smash in your die cut machine. So, please know -- a bottle cap off one of my hubby's beer bottles was my true intent. It didn't, however, end that way! LOL! Here goes....
I have a quick and easy card with the center of my card all about the bottle cap! I stamped the Medallion Motif image on Flourishes White Card Stock using Versafine Black Onyx.  Add some color to my image thanks to this Copic Collection....The Lenten Rose Collection.


 And here's a close up of the coloring. You can see I added some bling to parts of my image! This one really sparkles! I added some 1/2" black ribbon and some extra bling and.... almost done!
 

I matted my image onto some of my decorative paper that was in my scrap bin -- some of it is My Mind's Eye from forever ago and the black and cream, I have no idea! ;-) I matted some of my panels onto some Flourishes Classic Black card stock just to give it a little extra pop! And that, my friends, is it! Done!

Hey... did you know... if you like playing along with the Timeless Tuesday gals, don't forget that they have a Friends of Flourishes DESIGN TEAM CALL!  You could become another fabulous designer for your favorite stamp company... yes.. .YOU!!!
