and then

and then finally at

So, my creation has a tag, and I'm trying some of my new toys!!

I really really love the new Brick Wall Embossing Folder - I've sponged it a bit on the edges to highlight the lovely textures, and then added some of the new corrugated cardboard in a panel over the top for some more awesome texture!!

I've used the Awesomely Artistic stamp set - and it is such a wonderfully versatile set!!
