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:
This card was really fun to do. I found an old piece of marbled paper I had made a LONG time ago. I loved the colors, and the "cells" kinda reminded me of DOTS, so I decided to use it.  ALSO, I got to use a couple of different elements that had been gifted to me by one of my besties. Thanks, Donna!!! The fern is one among many die cuts she sent to me, as is the greeting. I LOVE the greeting, isn't it fabulous?
