Well I'm finally back with a blog post, it has been a long time....

I have still been making the odd card, but life just got so busy that is was really hard to find some spare time.

I've decided to start making a few changes, so that I can spend some quality time with the family, plus get back into this hobby I love.

I've made a card that was inspired by two challenges, the CAS on Sunday - use a repetition image, and Less is More - shimmer.

I used the butterfly die from Concord & 9th for my repetition background, and the My Favorite Things Hugs die which I die cut from paper I had sponged some distress oxide inks onto. I added some Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to the Hugs die for some shimmer although it's hard to see in the photo, along with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by x
