I'm back!!

Hey there!! Happy Spring to you all!! I have a couple cards to share with you today.... these were made at a recent Stamp-a-Stack. Hope you like them!! The first card is hard to tell from the photo, but the bird image punched out with the square punches has a cracked glass finish. Click here to see how this technique is done...it looks so neat IRL!! This was a CASE from a card I spotted on SCS. We made 4 each of the 3 designs. The candle shown was the gift for the hostess. Please let me know if you have any questions!!
