French Kiss



Scrap kit of choice - I am using the lovely "French Kiss" kit by Laura of Cinnamon Scraps
which can be purchased from Designer Scraps Livin' Large
Tube of choice - I am using the artwork of Barbara Jensen which can be purchased from her site
WSL_Mask214 by Chelle which can be found on her blog
Script Fonts of choice - I am using Bickham Script Pro Regular and Bickham Script Fancy (which are pay fonts)
Eye Candy Gradient Glow (optional)

Open Mask and fonts and minimise them for later
