Less is More week 81 theme-Tearing

The LIM challenge this week is the theme of TEARING. My first quick glance and I read it wrong and thought it said TEA RING!! Confused or what? I'm pretty good at tearing especially when things go wrong:) Anyway tearing made me think of ancient papers and so this is what I came up with:




          Recipe:
Ribbed square base card
Judikins cube stamp Hieroglyphics
Darkroom Door sentiments
Gold ink and metallic bronze EP
Tiny gold gems

Thanks for visiting me I love to read your comments:)
