I have used PB´s kickin stamp and coloured with prisma´s, about time I had a play with these,and I have used 3d pads to raise a die cut sissix frame.
ABC Challenge X is for Theme is for an X somewhere on your project. I have marked X´s around the sissix frame with an embossing pen and heat embossed these in gold.
One Stop Craft Challenge 13 Theme is "Charmed". I have suspended a gold embossed charm "hand made with love" from a pink ribbon, sorry you can´t see this clearly but I am having probs with sciatica and can´t stand still.
