The sponsor of this challenge is
This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite 2 embellishments (& why).
You MUST explain WHY they are your favourite.

Well I have to say I am not one for lots of embellishments so I have to say my totally favourite embellishments are enamel dots or pearls and I love jute twine or bakers twine so I have used 2 of those on my card. I have smouched the distress ink pad on the stamp spritz with water and stamped not a difficult technique and great for a quick male card.

So here are a few challenges I would like to play:

Coming soon!
Could not add any because blogger doesn't like my Ipad!

Have a great day
