Have I Lost My Mind?

Its almost 3 am & I have been working on this card for almost 2 hours! Making tiny golden tassels, paper latterns, taking photos, omgosh. If you find my marbles please return them....

I just couldn't help myself. Hubby brought me home this beautiful Washi paper the other day & I was enabled by the FS challenge on SCS. I chose this card . I had wanted to make something for Shelli's blog contest also & since i'm cutting it down to the wire I figured what the heck who needs sleep! Anyway back to the card. I mounted the Washi paper to Whisper White because it was too thin to punch. Then I punched the large oval & 2 key tags & ran them through the crimper. A stampin friend Lois had made tassels for a Stamp n Chat project awhile back so I thought I would give it a try. Found a how to video on YouTube. If you search just be warned you may find some instructions for umm...upperbody tassels. Just keep scrolling down. LOL! Its very easy to do once you see it. Well friends its now after 3am & I have to go to bed now or I will not be a happy camper tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!
