Good evening.a real quick clean and simple card tonight.i have been busy making my brother the valentines card he asked for.i just need to make a box now.i would normally share it but its a really personal and special card and i don`t feel right in embarrasing him.all i can say is, his girlfriend is so lucky :D
so on to my card for tonight, i decided to try a little experiment with this one and tryed stamping and colouring on to my white pearl card to see how it would look.it actually colours really well, which surprised me but its a B to photo.
