A Decoupage Card .........


Hi everyone, I have a decoupage card to show you tonight. Decoupage cards where the first cards I made when I got into card making over 7 years ago and every now and then I like to make to one. This one is a bit different to my early cards as then I only used the decoupage picture and a peel off greeting and my card was done!
