Stamped Bargello

Evening Everyone
I hope that you have had a good day.
I had another fabulous class at Davina's.
Who knew you could have so much fun with some strips of paper and double sided sticky tape!!
My good friend Gill was back from her hols so there was also plenty of coffee, good conversation, and she brought some fabulous biccies which we all ate far too many of. All in all a fantastic way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
The class this week was on Bargello which I did many years ago with tapestry thread but which I was recently reacquainted with over at Technique Time Tuesday where Mynnette explains the technique using paper.
 As usual they started the class with a tag for their book, complete with instruction sheet.
I added some vellum, which as I explained to the Girls is always great for covering up any bad stamping.
The left over portion of my Bargello panel has been used to create this card.
The stamp is from Stampendous and was definitely one of those 'I have to have' purchases.
Alright, I know they are all a bit like that, but this one was top of my list when the new catalogue came out.
I stamped and embossed the image onto the Bargello panel and then used the tree part of the stamp on the right hand side of the Kraft card.
I think that this makes a great 'Man's card'.
I would like to enter this into the following challenge
Tuesday Throwdown - Make your own Background
Boy, look at the time, I had better close now, I have another full days crafting tomorrow. It's a hard life isn't it lol.
