Garden girl

Did everyone have a great 4th of July? How lucky we all are to be able to celebrate the freedoms we have. I have the rest of this week off and since it is too hot here to do much outside you might (as in will) be seeing several posts from me over the next few days.

My first post is for one of my fav stamp companies, Stamping Bella and their challenge this week is to use embossing on your card. I love embossing and always forget about the folders I have sitting in my craft area so this was a great way pull one out and get busy.

I have used Gardenia Greenthumbs and my embossing folder is from SCACD and is called Daisy Do. She is cut out with a spellbinders die and the paper is Neopolitan by Dear Lizzy. She is colored mostly with Shinhan Touch Twin markers which can also be found at SCACD.

I am also entering this into the following challenges:
Touch Twin markers  inspiration photo
Stamping Bella  embossing
Oozak challenge blog  bright colors

Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurve! The green die... need it. The image... need it. You just do something with colour that I can't pull off. And the yellow paper, it looks like a piece of card with a white floral cut out over the top. Is that right? Or is it a really pretty paper? Anyway, fabbo. Enjoy your time off. :) xxx
