Brayering Difference

Cardstock White, black & Moondust silver from "stash".
Punches Woodware (leaves, circle & scalloped circle).

Beautiful! Love the brayering and i'm impressed you haven't got stripes (which is always my problem!) I'm sure the recipient will love it! Thanks for joining us at OSCC this week xx
