  5. Fab card Trace. That white pen just gives it the perfect finish. You've got some nice layers on the top too, I like that. Michelle x

  6. Fabulous card Trace, I love bats too although they frighten me a bit! Love the barbed wire. I have a couple of sets of the blueprint stamps and have to admit I want them all now. I was not sure at first but they are so versatile. Your background is amazing on this, even without the riveting - lol. Crafty hugs, Anne x
