Today is also a very special day as it is none other than my birthday! What a fun way for me to celebrate. I am off out with my darling Hb to celebrate after I have opened my cards and pressies.
For my Spring piece I decided that I would make a card using the very first die I bought from Country View Crafts, a Sizzix accordion die. I love using it for very special cards so it seemed a good choice for today.
I decided to made 2 master boards to decorate the die with so I chose some spring Fresco paint colours and started to brayer on the colours..
Here it is ;
and some close ups to show the details;
