Can You Handle the Pressure - BORDERS

Dear Ones~ 
 There's a new challenge over at Can You Handle the Pressure.   For this challenge blog you MUST use an EMBOSSING FOLDER on your project.  Heat embossing (with embossing powder) 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:
Isn't this pretty with the kraft as a background? Was going to use a different color, but I think the purple and green are so striking against that kraft. I used a fabulous embossing folder called Pinwheel, by Sizzix. And those gorgeous lacey borders are a Tim Holtz die set called Crochet.

The Ingredients:
Recollections Kraft, Purple and White Card Stock
Sizzix Pinwheel Embossing Folder
SU Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder
Tim Holtz Crochet Die Set
 SU Framed Florets Stamp for Floral Image
SU Teeny Tiny Wishes for Greeting
GKD Master Layouts 1 Die for Oval
Stash Ribbons and Rhinestones

 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.

I hope you will have a blessed new year and I wish you all the best in 2023! When you get a chance, please go take a look at the Can You Handle the Pressure blog. You won't be sorry.
Until next time dear reader, aspire to be inspired, and here's celebrating your Creative Muse.
