Shelli's card from Convention
This was one of my favourite cards demoed at convention by none other that SU! co-founder & CEO Shelli Gardner.
I must admit I went to my first poppin' pastels class at my upline's a few months ago & just loved the technique - it certainly wowed me.
So thought I'd like to repeat the experience for my class attendees & thought immediately of this card - like Shelli I've dyed the white ribbon from Dress Up originals with coffee - very scrummy.
