VIrtual Stamping Night - The Crush

Last weekend's VSN Mini was so much fun! I didn't get a chance to play nearly as many challenges I wanted to, but I had a blast hanging with my peeps on the VSN threads and trying my hand a some new techniques. This one was one of my favs. The challenge was hosted by my Sassy friend Sherry, who asked us to use the Burned Batik technique on our card. This was new for me, but was much easier than it looked and I loved the effect. By the way, this card has ELEVEN LAYERS ~ a lot even for me!
