Clean and Simple 4 – Hi

CS4_participantWell the Online Card Class Clean & Simple 4 is almost over, and I have only managed to make one card for it! With the new school year just beginning here, there are so many things that have needed to take precedence!
I really loved the faux embossing technique that Yana showed on Day 4 – so I went with it. I have done a similar technique before, but not in the same colour as the card base – and I like the effect that it creates.
