Here is Karen's description....
"Here’s two cc The man one I’ve done before but have changed bits and decoupaged it differently this time All from Serif and a Tim Holtz die STRIPES:METALLIC:DIE CUT or BANNER
The second was inspired by Lisa Horton on Hochanda The Flights of Fancy die has been cut from a PP background The other dies are SW too
Karen's third card description:
The sentiment is one of the new dies you showed today mounted on white which again is a die cut but I cut it into 2 and scored one part every 1/2 centimetre on my Hougie It’s a shame the photo doesn’t really pick it up and of course the metallic is silver mirri board and silver ribbon I had in my stash"
