PBG Birthday

Here's a pretty card to start a new week of creating. I wish you could see the sparkle on each of the stripes. I went down each side of the dark grey stripes with the Clear Star gel pen. This usually happens when I'm going for subtle, it doesn't show up in the photo. I've also been looking around on You Tube and discovered several videos of how to use your punches in different ways. I made these scallops by taking the guard off my lg. corner rounder punch and punching around the semi-circle. It makes a nice wide scallop.
