CAS Colours and Sketches guest designer

Happy New Year! My first post of 2018 and I'm happy to be January guest designer at CAS Colours and Sketches. This week's sketch is above and here is what I made.


The "thanks" is die-cut from an alcohol inks piece, the banner heat embossed and sponged with ink and I added some little enamel stickers. The background is dry embossed.

Also linking up two challenges:
