There will be a "hidden" prize on one of the DT member's today so be sure to check us all out! The winner will be announced tomorrow on The Greeting Farm Blog. Here's my card using Oliver:


Oliver & Amelia are some of my favorites! This one is the perfect stamp to practice hair techniques too but I chose to go with a simple blending technique. The shooting star and sentiments are also from this set.

Did you know? Shagreen is a type of leather or rawhide consisting of rough untanned skin, formerly made from a horse's back or that of an onager (wild ass), and typically dyed green. Shagreen is now commonly made of the skins of sharks and rays. The word derives from the French chagrin and due to the roughness of its texture it led to the French meaning of anxiety, vexation, embarrassment, or annoyance.
