my first attempt

this is my first attempt at using embossing paste so think i need to improve and practice a bit.

i used a robin brass stencil, the backing paper was a freebie from a magazine i then embossed the mirri card with the holly embossing folder and used a bit of dark green card to matt

Thank you card

This is the thank you card I have made to send to the vets, as they were so kind and understanding when I had to have them come to the house on Monday afternoon this week to put my darling boy Peter to sleep, they sent me a condolence card and a packet of Forget Me Not seeds so felt I had to do this for them.

I used the Joanna Sheen cd rom Pamela West for the images and then just a simple mat and layering.
