A Place to Start - - 1st May, 2023

At a Place to start the theme is Anything goes + 1 and out sponsor is  Mirtillamente.

I chose Get Well Soon for my card, coloured with copic pens and diecut. 

After doing this for  many years, I had  a light bulb moment.  I have started scanning my dies, then I can pull them up on the computer and size an image perfectly to fit the space.

My added plus is the ribbon.
