I've had a box of decoupage for ever so decided to dig it out and start using it. I've added it to a brand new nestie die which I've inked around the edges. 8 x8 pink base card has been embossed with lines and the decoupage mat added to the resulting centre square. Card is finished with a bow, a heart and a stamped sentiment.

Top Tip Tuesday tip - save the small waste shapes from border punches for use as "snow" in your shaker cards or little embellishments.

Challenges entered:
Top Tip Tuesday - birthday time or birth
Less is More - anything goes (week 5 pastel colours)
Fresh Brewed - something new
