Forgotten Treasures/ Fragments

How many of you bought Tim Holtz's Fragments..... now how many of you used them?  I loved the idea and the look but never gave it a try and yes I bought the fragments and then when the charms came out I had to have those too, you will be seeing those in the future.  This being my first try with them I think I did a pretty good job, but had a bit of bubbles in there.  I used an image from a calendar and the image is on slick and very thin paper, next time I will try it with thicker paper and no gloss to it. For those of you that haven't heard of these Here is a video of Tim showing them.

I also used papers from my scrap bin for my background, it is getting quite full again.

Even though it is still getting hot in the afternoon we have been blessed with some cool mornings that I have been able to open the doors and windows and let the fresh air in, Love it!!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by, love to hear from you,

Oh, Connie, what a lovely card, and I always appreciate when I get to use scraps! Yay! I never got Tim's Fragments, but I love the image you sweet! It has a translucent look, and the jewels and ribbon finish it perfect. So glad the weather is a little better! Hugs, sweet friend!

I don't have much in the way of Tim Holtz stuff and all and I don't know what his Fragments are, but this sure is a pretty card!
