CPS 99 - Wrought Iron Celtic Knot

So while my dearly beloved is away, I decided to take on the CPS #99 challenge over at

The three tiles on the side are stamped inkadinkado celtic knots, heat embossed with several layers of UTEE. The large celtic knot is a Maya Road chipboard piece which has been inked with Stazon Black pigment ink and then given a very light layer of black embossing powder which was then heated as well. It doesn't come across in the photo but in real life it gives the chipboard a look and feel of wrought-iron. LOVE IT! And the big co-inky-dink? The large chipboard pattern actually matches the quarters that make up the knot tiles. Sweet Serendipity!

The Love sentiment is a pewter embellishment. I think from the Dollar Store.

That pink tapestry paper? A freebie from a magazine I picked up last year. It is beautiful and I have been hording it for a special use - it was only a 5x7 sample of michael miller textured fabric paper (see or It feels like heavily starched brocaded organza, if that makes sense. The remaining 5 x 1.75 inch piece of paper will likely get used on another special card.

Anywhoooo, the celtic knot tiles sit on top of a lilac organza ribbon. Card base is a simple black CTMH card stock.

My Doug will get this card when he returns from Vancouver.

So what do you think? I'm thinking I'm paying a visit to Michael's tomorrow for some more black embossing powder. I have a bunch more celtic knots just waiting to be transformed!
