Bavarian Pretzel Time to Celebrate Card

Offspring3 gave me this pretzel die for my birthday, I finally pulled it out to use it (Sorry! She knows I love it!).

I started with mustard colored card stock, and blended 3 colors of Distress Ink on that. I was pleased with the result. I used a Signo Gel Pen to make the white salt crystals.

You know I LOVE pretzels…
