You're Cool Beans

OMG! I thoroughly enjoyed myself making this card! I have found some gorgeous gingham digital papers and used two of them on this card, along with some great Echo Park and Gina K Designs patterned paper. I used the "cracked glass" technique - one of my all-time favs - for the focal image. I used four different Spellbinders dies. I created some gingham flowers, inked a small round paper doily and added some pearls and gemstones. Great fun!
