This week I decided to set myself a challenge that of using some of the lovely free papers found with cardmaking magazine. Some of these papers as superlicious but I have never brought myself to use them. Well, here is a card I made for the PBSC weekly challenge asking us to make a Thank You card. I also used a lovely image sent to me after I bought 2 packets of Prima Flowers (My first Primas! - apologies for the pun lol).
