well....

I am NOT loving this card. Not at all. Honestly, ew. But, what I do like is the background that I created.
I stamped a damask image with a Essentials Glue Pad onto shimmer cardstock. Then I covered it with flock. It looks very cool. Wish I hadn't wasted it on this card! :)
thanks for stopping by!
Supplies:
Shimmer cardstock-The Paper Cut

HI!

Welcome to the H&MStamps design team. I am an illustrator for H&M so you won't see many cards by me, but you will most likely use some sets I have designed.

Have fun!
