This cabinet card is my entry to Challenge #15.

        For this challenge we are using the cabinet card pocket technique found on page 38
of Tim Holtz's book Compendium of Curiosities Volume III.  If you don't have this book you
can order a signed copy HERE.
            Linda Ledbetter is hosting this challenge.  You may visit her at Studio L3 for all the
            Inspiration Emporium is sponsoring this challenge.  A lucky winner will receive a
$50 gift certificate to use at their shop.
            There is also a winner selected by the Curosity Crew.  Their pick will receive a pack
of 'goodies' from Tim Holtz and Mario Rossi.

             I mounted a photo of Danny, my childhood friend, into cabinet card.  Then I covered
the front of card with Kaleidoscope Collection paper by Kaiser Craft.  Also covered tag with
coordinating color.
             I used Distress Inks antique linen and broken china to grunge up papers.

             Using Idea-ology Grungeboard shapes, I blended peeled paint and a touch of broken china. Then I glued these shapes and the rest of my findings and flowers onto the cabinet
card and inserted tag into the top.
