What fun I have had today, playing about with this card & learning new things - let me explain... Well my card is like no other I have made to date. It's green in colour but green by nature too - can you spot the recycled coke can?
Yes you read correctly, but I had a double take last night when I read a thread over on Do Crafts which directed me to this blog page by Craft-Fairy
Having read all about it last night, coke was purchased & consumed today then I set to work on the can, it's so easy & I love the finished die cuts.
Now as luck would have it, the challenge on My Partner in Crafting Crime was a 3-2-1 recipe, 3 embs (2 ribbon bands & a gem), 2 papers - yup got that & to add something unusual to your card, that you normally wouldn't - so I thought I ticked off that bit of the challenge nicely with my coke can numbers.
Finally I also did a load of paper piecing on my PB lady, giving her a lovely co-ordinated outfit and so fitting the challenge on Crafty Cats.
