Vintage powder!

Today I have been very productive - but I can't show you any of it since it's all DT work =)

But then I went to my local craft store and treated myself to some new punches and just HAD to try them...


You know when you buy something on a whim, it's like it slips into your basket by mistake and then you find that it's the one thing you just can't be without ever again? Well, I just found that today. Reprint's vintage embossing powder. Not brown but almost, not gold but almost, not transparent but almost. And 100 % heaven!!

So I made this card using Charizma Cards sketch. I used my Hänglar image, Wild Asparagus papers, my new MS punch and embossed swirls with... you guessed it ;)

I'm also adding it to A spoon full of sugar - theme Spring - cause these are the colours here when the snow start to melt ;)

And to Cute Card Thursday - theme metal - with my flower centre.

And this evening I went to see the Princess and the Frog with my youngest. If you haven't seen it yet - do! The music is awesome!! Don't have kids? Grab a neighbour's!
