'Inky Impressions'

This is my second post for today, please scroll down to see my creation for The Stamping Chef!

Today I am sharing with you my first card using an image from the fab 'Inky Impressions' I was so excited when I received my first few images to play with. I just wanted to say thank you for having me on your DT & I can't wait to play with more of your gorgeous images xx

This week we have a fab theme for you this week....


we want to see all your fancy folded cards, whether that's an easel card or a tri-fold card!
