#6 Spotlight Technique

Welcome to our  NEW blog.  
We recognise, whilst there are many challenge blogs for all
forms of papercrafts and card making, so why a new one ? 
We hope to reach newbies, to provide  new challenges where you can learn
 new techniques and new skills. 
Many seasoned challengers may also enjoy joining in our
challenges to re-awaken long lost skills and techniques., or
just to join in for the fun of it. 

What would you like to see in future challenges?
We would love to know, please add your requests in the Comments.

topper for her card, not just by triple embossing
