In all honesty, I would have an incredibly hard time choosing just ONE set of dies as my fave this year, lol. At least I snuck in a second set on this card, which needed just a little bit of special business along the top of the central panel. How can you go wrong with cupcakes, really?
For my background layer, I made a home-made embossing sheet with the curly thinlet shape and chipboard. I got best results using my crease pad in the "sandwich!"
