Magnolia

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

A nice relaxing day is planned here, might do some crafting but not decided yet.

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square base card.
2. Matted and layered pink card.
3. To create the background I used SN glitter pens and whilst wet scrunched some cling film and placed over. Once dry I removed the cling film to create the creases in the background.
