Ladybug crafts floral release

Hello everyone! Today is a special day for me as I was asked by my wonderful friend Kerry of Ladybug Crafts Ink to participate in their latest release. Kerry and the Ladybugs were the very first dt I belonged too and I have to tell you, they are some of the nicest, funny and most welcoming gals I have ever hung out with. 

Anyways, the latest release is called Floral Delight Too and we would also like you to incorporate embossing into your card to participate in the challenge this time.

I tried to go with a bit of a soft feminine feel and have embossed the gold "Just Because" in the lower corner and the edges of my image have been dry embossed with my Big Shot. I have added some spica pen glitter to the champagne in the glasses and then a layer of glossy accents. My leaf die is cut out of sookwang adhesive and then I rubbed glitter on it so that glitter ain't gonna nowhere! How is that for some good ole American slang? Ok, make sure you check out all the other Ladybugs to see all of the awesome digis available in the latest release!

I know that I have told you this before - but the best thing about being AWOB (absent without blogging) for a while is that i get to make a cuppa and just sit on your blog for ages. Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous and fabulous. I mean your cards! hugs xoxox

I had a lump in my throat reading your opening Amanda!!! Thank you so much for coming back for our new release...it's great to see your wonderful talent on LCI images once again. I haven't heat embossed for years and it's what got me into stamping in the first place! Love the glittered leaf...think I have some of that stuff...the adhesive not glitter lol. Gorgeous xx
