I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #55

This is my DT card for this week's challenge on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which has been set by our lovely CATHY. She has chosen a colour theme of:-

ORANGE + 1 OTHER COLOUR

I don't use orange very much as too bright for me but I thought if I paired with brown then it would tone it down a little! I have also had a play with my new Tim Holtz distressing tool - what do you think?

Image: CC Designs
Papers: K & Co
Medium: Promarkers
Sentiment: Hero arts
Tools: Martha Stewart Embossing border punch, Woodware circle, Cherry and blink Blink punches, EK Success photo corner punch, Tim Holtz distressing tool
Pearls & brad from stash
