Having some Grid Paper under your work definitely helps too. I also drew a faux frame… Read more »

It sort of looks like you’d need to be a bit artistic to use it or have a specific purpose. Well, how wrong was I? This is a gorgeous set with so many ways to alter and play with it. The card above is another of my Beautiful You cards with the ruffled… Read more »
