Special to Me


Happy Weekend everyone. Been experimenting with different skin tones this week, was going for mixed race but I'm not sure if it's really worked or not. For this card I've used a digi image from Mo Manning. I printed it as big as I could reasonably fit on a card and used a relatively simple layout. The papers are by Zoe Pearn from the Sweet Shoppe and the sentiment is computer generated. No matter what I do I can never get those label nestabilities to emboss neatly. Never mind I still really like this card. I'm entering it to the Cute Card Thursday Whateva! challenge.
