I am so, so, so excited about this card… I have played with my Cri-Kits enough to be able to incorporate them into my kind of designs… so this card was so fun to make… I use by Cri-Kits pens for the background and for the flag… I am so excited about how this turned out…and it gives the illusion of even more depth. I so hope that you like it too!!… I will be sending this to Dru at Cri-Kits to take with them to the CHA Show in Chicago… how fun is that… too bad I can’t fold myself up in the card… I cherish your comments and thank you so much for looking!
