Bun in the Oven

Grá O'Neill- PAper Learning Curve: Lawn Fawn Plus One, Large Stitched Rectangles, Tim Holtz Dot Fade stencil

I missed the deadline for linking my last card to the first Sparkle and Shine Challenge, so I'm made sure this one doesn't miss the boat! I've used Pretty Pink Posh sequins on the top half and glimmer mist on the bottom half of my card base as per the sketch. The sentiment is clear embossed so it won't run, but the distress marker block has spread out nicely at the bottom.

The Lawn Fawn oven was white heat embossed and coloured with distress markers as part of Kathy Racoosin's (The Daily Marker) 30 Day Colouring Challenge. I've liberally coated the glass portion of the oven with glossy accents and set the timer for 20:15 as my SIL's baby is due later in the year! I've kept the colours neutral as we don't know the sex of the baby, it'll be a wonderful surprise.
