We have 2 wonderful sponsors, and I am working with 


My card uses the image Cheshire Cat


I used a Clarity stencil and Distress inks to create the window, then dusted with perfect pearls to give it a shimmer. I then fussy cut it out and ran it through my die cutting machine using a We R Memory Keepers Next Level embossing folder, choosing to create a de-bossed impression. I used the same embossing folder for the background but this time using the embossing side. The image is coloured with Copic's and also fussy cut. The sentiment is from my stash and mounted and framed using MFT Rectangle Word Window & Frame dies. I used some Stickles for the embellishments.
