"Make your dreams happen"

Crafters Companion can help to 'Make Your Dreams Happen' today

Something totally different for Sussipoppins today!...and using the colour ORANGE!

I love the large sentiment that I could colour, then applied diamond stickles to get that bling that I love so much. I felt it gave a lit to a very very simple card front....something I normally do not do!....Simple that

Who does not like a few close ups. Here you can se the colour used in the groves of the embossing .

The embossing is done twice. The second layer is fussy cut, collard then adhered to the card front base using the 3D tape or squares. Stickles are added to the boon basket....small but effective.
