November Fireworks

Continuing the firework theme for November.

For those "over the pond", here in the UK we commemorate with fireworks, the thawarting of the Gunpowder Plot, where Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament back in 1605.

This little ATC is for a SWAP, where we were asked to use something that was a gift. As I rarely buy gems, I suspect the blue gems must have been in a free gift on a magazine some time ago.

Very nice - like the rocket firework and the interesting edging to the card - did you use clear embossing powder? Elizabeth xx

That's a great rocket BJ and love the shiny letters too. I think you should use gems more often, they look fab! Crafty hugs, Anne x
