Wishing You... Cake & Chocolate!

I've recently spent some time on holiday on the great Murray River forced to sit down and do nothing. As I couldn't take my Copics away with me, I was able to put my new collection of Distress Markers into my bag to have a play with. This is one of the images I was able to quietly colour up for Challenge #19 is starting over at Scrapbooker PhD Challenge Blog. Challenge #19 is to create a 'Masculine Birthday card using a Die'. Here is my DT inspiration for you.

My favourite embellishment is dies. I love how versatile they are, how you can get them in pretty much any design and can modify them to make them fit your image. For example the above card used this die which I modified to look like a spell had been cast.


  1. Love your card Alicia, what paper did you use for the star die, I love the way it sparkles xx
