Can You Handle the Pressure - THINGS with WINGS


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:
I am loving this die set by Tim Holtz called Funky Insects. Cutting them out in white or ivory cardstock and just putting them together in that way is so much fun. I die cut some flowers and decorated this sweet moth. I think she looks so pretty in the pastel colors. All three panels were embossed with different embossing folders. Makes for an interesting look for this mini slimline.
