Can You Handle the Pressure - Wreaths

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's my card:
The background for this card uses the Tim Holtz Lumber embossing folder. It was embossed with gray card and then sponged with GKD Smoky Slate ink. I love the wreath dies. They are from Stampin' Up and work every time to make a beautiful wreath.


The Ingredients:
GKD Tranquil Teal, Kraft and Smoky Slate Card Stock
SU Cajun Craze Card Stock
Tim Holtz Lumber Embossing Folder
SU Wreath Builder Dies
SU Iconic Dies
Hero Arts Prayers Die
Trinity Stamps Satin Baubles

If you head on over to the Can You Handle the Pressure Blog and play along, you could win this fabulous triple embossing folder, it's a stunner. 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 and aspire to be inspired! You won't be sorry.
Until next time dear reader, here's celebrating your Creative Muse.

  2. Just beautiful my friend! What a great color trio and love all the layering! Absolutely awesome design ... thanks for inspiration!

  3. This is so beautiful from the background to that amazing looking wreath! I adore all of the layers! The background is really perfect in those soft greys, great texture too! That wreath is so creative using your unique colors. And that prayers die-couldn't we all use a bit more of those? Topped with baubles--so pretty! Fabulous! xo~
