Another out of the ordinary lay out tonight. All those arrows had me seeing tags, lots and lots of tags. So I cut lots and lots of tags! :D I made this card primarily as a masculine card but seeing as I had to incorporate some peach color for the challenge, I chose a couple peach tags and peach thread. The sentiment on the last tag is a digital stamp from Whimsy Stamps, just altered a bit using brown instead of black on my computer and ran through the printer a few times. The green 'coin' in the slot was a fluke. The space it is in is actually a ticket, but the slit popped open. So, I decided to slip in the stamped circle as sort of a coin. The hedgehog digital stamp I thought gave the card a little bit of fun ---'whimsy grunge'.
