hanging the wreath

Here's my card for the challenge over at Penny's that started on Wednesday... Our theme during this week is "favourite technique and/or colour". So it should be easy for everyone to enter.

We also have some generous sponsors again.

Prize - 4 digi images of winners choice

Shop - Blog 
Prize - 5 digis of winners choice

Here's my card... and one of my favourite techniques is "heat embossing", even though I don't use it often enough... because my room is glittering for ages afterwards. *LOL*

Sentiment: Heyda stamp
Colours: Polychromos from Faber Castell
Dies: Spellbinder Nestabilities

    Es ist Zeit für Liebe und Gefühl,
