Just for You

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at Die Cut Dreams . This weeks challenge is to use

on your creation. If you need a little inspiration just take a look at the stunning creations my DT buddies have made, links are on my sidebar.

I went back to another of my old loves and did a wee spot of pergamano. Can´t believe at long last I found a use for these opaque buttons.

Cute Card Thursday - A Tweet and a Flutter

Daring Cardmakers - Come Fly with Me

Fairy Fun Friday - Embossing

Flutter By Wednesday - use Buttons along with your fairy, butterfly or angel

Wowzer hun this is totally gorgeous!!, I so admire people who can do this technique, cos I'm rubbish at it :-), far too heavy handed me I end up with more holes, then there should be :-).

Fantastic card Nicola and I love the beautiful soft lilac shades.
