Card Of the Week

 This week we're back to basics!  With all the toys and tools that are available to us these days we forget how effective simple things like pencil crayons can be.  Here we've stamped   'Dogwood Branch' and 'Create Art' (one of my favourites) from Memorybox, on kraft cardstock using Tsukineko Rich Cocoa. Next, we dusted off the pencil crayons and coloured in the branch. Trim the cardstock, to the sizeof the word background, before mounting it on a chocolate covered mat. On another piece of kraft card stock, stampand colour 'Dogwood Branch' again as shown.  Mount the smaller mat on top and adhere the whole thing to a coral card.
