Here's what she has made for us!
 Hi friends 
Mukta here 
My today's project is a single layer card...
For this i used digi stamp . After stamping i draw two lines with the help of ruler..
Then i drew some circles (randomly) in different size and colour with copics..
After that I add glossy accent over the circles....
It's really very simple and fun card with very less supplies.. I hope you like it..
Thank you 

I hope you enjoyed this card, it's very simple and easy to make, yet the glossy accent does it bit! It sure makes this card a pretty one to look at !
