0 11 Comments

Today’s handmade card has been created for the new challenge at Aud Sentiments challenge blog #277.

The theme for this challenge is Anything Goes + A Sentiment.

You can make any type of project such as a card, tag, scrapbook layout, pocket letter, box etc.

We could make any card this time so I have used a digital image from Twistoon called Georges Hammock Gnome.
