  2. Thank you, Becky, I hope you got to see the video! it showed it was embedded but then didn't have it when it posted. I added it back in. :)

  3. What a lovely card and way to use the new stv kit. Love that you used images from one of your sets with it. Hope to be getting my kit soon and I already have Branching Out so I will be set to give this a try.

  4. Thanks Melanie, you are such an inspiration. You make things so elegant but easy. I have your Branching Out kit but will have to wait on the new stv kit. Anxious to try the technique.
