Hello crafters! I decided to create something different ^_^ as a gift for a friend . The Shadow box card was a perfect way to capture the scene of french cafe. I used some very heavy card stock this time and it really did help
I'm sure the recipient will get excited when she notices that the card is dimensional and will display it with delight.
I have mixed media card
to show you all today......CHECK IT OUT!!!
I made this mixed media
piece for Simonsaysstamps Monday challenge; idea inspired by the journey through

Here is my March DT project for Crafts Dreamy. There is a monthly challenge at their blog http://craftsdreamy.blogspot.com.eg/ where you will find all the details & a new mood board each month for inspiration. This month the main inspiration is coffee.....
I have created a card based around coffee & friends. First I created some matts & layers with coffee themed papers, then I repeatedly stamped a coffee cup onto a piece of card to add ontop. I then made a small shaker window with fussy cut coffee beans inside, before adding a coffee themed sentiment & some stamped images that I coloured with watercolours. I finished it all off with some Hessian ribbon & coloured flatback pearls.
