A Bit of Ultra Thick Enamelling

I really enjoyed making this card mainly because I did some heat embossing & some distressing which I haven't done for ages :-)

This card was made for 4 challenges:-
Everybody-Art - Sketch
Flutter By - Buttons & Bows
Charisma Cardz - Buttons
Creative Card Crew - Ribbons

The papers are from Designs by Krista & the image was given to me by my dear friend Linda. The card is finished with a ribbon, button & greeting (found in stash). As it is my day off today I'm hoping to get some more crafting done but there is the ironing etc....

Ooh, this is gorgoeus Tracey, the image is almost surreal, I love it. UTE is such fun isn't it, you don't do if for ages then get hooked all over again.
