Can You Handle the Pressure - Thanks

 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 (with embossing powder) 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 is my card:
I really like this card. I was tired of doing fall cards, so I decided to do something different. The embossing folder is a very old Cuttlebug one. I embossed it with blue card stock that has a white core, and then sanded it to make the embossed images stand out. The girl's dress is fussy cut with some really awesome patterned paper by Honey Bee.

The Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
Park Lane Paperie Card Stock in Blue
Spellbinders Pinked Circle Die
Top Dog Labels #1 Die
Cuttlebug Thanks Embossing Folder
Honey Bee Team Die Dye Patterned Paper
SU Beautiful You Stamp Set
SU Ornate Thanks Stamp for Greeting
GKD Tranquil Teal Ink
Trinity Stamps Bubble Blow Out Baubles

  If you head on over to the Can You Handle the Pressure Blog and play along, you could win this fabulous embossing folder, it's a stunner. Don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created.
