Using Some Of My Favourite Products

Today, I decided to use some of my most favourite products, namely, my Papertrey Ink Impression Plate in Linen (very expensive to ship to the UK, but I had wanted it for ever) and my WOW embossing powder in Metallic Gold Sparkle . . . and man, does it sparkle, it is sooo pretty in real life!

Anyway, I decided to make another  card for the two challenges I made them for yesterday, the, Addicted To CAS #53 'Dots' Challenge and the Less Is More #200 'Celebrations' Challenge

The LIM challenge is their 200th - congratulations to them - and the ATCAS challenge is 'Dots' and is their 53rd challenge and a DT call.

This is the card


 Supplies used:

PTI - Impression Plate in 'Linen'
Die - Simon says Stamp, Confetti Circles (ideal for a celebration)
Stamps - Clearly Besotted, 'Mini Banner, Stamp & Die Set' and 'A Little Sentimental'
WOW - 'Metallic Gold Sparkle' embossing powder.

Thank you all for taking the time out to visit and comment (I know it's time consuming) so I appreciate you all - and, of course try to reciprocate!  Have a great weekend.  Hazel x
