I cut a rectangle of card to be slightly smaller than my card base, and then I die cut the… Continue reading The More Candles, The Bigger The Wish!
I love the latest MFT challenge colours - coral and teal is such a pretty combination. I already had an idea for a card, so I thought the colours would be perfect for it.
