Grungy Monday doesn't look so grungy!

I found some time to play this week, and am joining in at Linda's StudioL3 blog for gungy monday. My piece doesn't look grungy at all, but the challenge is to use Tim Holtz's grungeboard or paper. I used grungepaper with Tim's butterflies movers and shapers dies. I inked the butterfly with Broken China DI, (my fav color!), and put some frosted lace stickles over it for some bling. This is a note holder that I made with supplies from Pat Catan's craft store. The base is a piece of wood that I painted with Jenni Bowlin chewing gum paint dabber. I stamped words on it with Antique Linen DI. I cut strips of paper and adhered them to the clothespins. I then glued them to the base with Alene's tacky glue. The other embellishments are from my stash. You can lay this flat on a table, or apply a hanger or magnet and hang it up. I may do this at next month's workshop! Thanks for looking in!
