Can You Handle the Pressure - Summer

Dear Ones~
 There's a new challenge up over at Can You Handle the Pressure.   For this challenge blog you MUST use an EMBOSSING FOLDER on your project.  Heat (wet) embossing is permitted but only in addition to your embossing folder design.  Each new challenge will have a 'TWIST' which is optional ... your choice to use or not.

The OPTIONAL TWIST for today's challenge is:


Here's My Card~
I just adore how this cute little card turned out. The image is an old digi stamp and I'm sorry but I do not have a clue where it came from. I could not resist using it because I think it SCREAMS summer. The embossing folder is a new one from Gina K Designs called Lattice, but I think it looks like an ice cream I colored the sweet image with my alcohol markers, something I haven't used in awhile. I forgot how much fun they are. The seeds and eyes are colored in with a black gel pen for dimension.

The Ingredients:
GKd Lipstick, Turquoise Sea, Wild Dandelion 
and White Card Stock
GKD Master Layouts 6
GKD Lattice Embossing Folder
Dick Blick Alcohol Markers
GKD Hello Sunshine Stamp Set for Greeting
Stash Patterned Paper
SU Layered Square Dies
Trinity Stamps Baubles.
 If you head on over to the Can You Handle the Pressure Blog and play along, you could win this fabulous embossing folder, and don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created.
Thank you so much for stopping by, your comments always make me smile. Please go take a look at the Can You Handle the Pressure blog, there's some wonderful inspiration over there. You won't be sorry.
Until next time dear reader, here's celebrating your Creative Muse.
