Die Cuts and Copics

Hi bloggies! I have a rather different design today with almost NO stamping. I can’t take credit for this idea (again)! 😉 I found a similar design on Instagram by Leigh Houston and just had to try it out. So … this card was done in a couple of sittings! (You can see the first…

Rainbows and cupcakes
