It took me ages to finish this card but here it is finally. A lot of thinking and inking and voila, it's done. But before I show you the final outcome have a look at the state of my desk for the past week. My thinking cap was on all the time but the bulb just wouldn't glow. So ladies at WOYWW, a late sneak peek for you here!
Until a few days later when I came up with this. The only problem? Now, I have to find envelopes in which to fit it as, silly me, I decided to go for 14.5 by 14.5cm and have none of this size at the moment. If you're interested, visit the video that inspired me on Hero Arts by Shari Caroll. Although I must say, I had to give it a little twist as I still don't have an electronic die cutting machine.
