Good afternoon everyone. Welcome to my room . Just spoke to our Son in Roxby Downs and the temperature there is over 40 . I think it is that here too. I'm here thinking of Mina , who has often suggested that I could send some of our warm weather her way as it is snowing in her area . Well Mina please take it!!
I am so over hot ...
Any way , remember a few days ago when I said that I would like to try and add more embellishment to my cards . Here is another of my attempts to do just that .
SU retired card stock , Whisper White .
Dot embossing folder , Big Shot
Diecut, Movers and Shakers , Jim Holtz
Image 'spring is back' Sarah kay
Basic brown ink
Various Markers .
Border punch Fiskars
Flowers , green leaves , rhinestones and ribbon from my stash .

I think that it is harder to add more to C6 size cards than the larger square cards but I think I am getting the hang of adding bits .
Hope you like the card I share today .
catch you again soon , cheers Shirley-Anne
