Video + Online Card Class - a giveaway!


Happy Saturday friends..hope you are enjoying the weekend!

I have a super long picture heavy post today with a video and a giveaway...so let me get started!


To begin .....I have a video showing you how I brought this card to life by building a scene around an image and I have used my favorite go to scene - adding a window behind a still life image .



The stamp is by Unity stamp Co and it's from their Feb 2014 SMAK kit-Camera Ready


Here is the video....
