CHARISMA CARDZ CHALLANGE 12.
This is my card I have made for challenge 12 my favouite things, it doesn't show all my favouite things as would need a very big card so went for a simply c6. I have used two colours I love pink and blue and used some of my favouite things which are ribbons and rubber stamps, gems, and brads. I am really into my cuttlebug and love to mix colours togther and papers. Bit of a simply card but still quite nice.
