Can You Handle the Pressure - Baby


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 bet you said"awe" when you saw this card, didn't you? Don't you just ADORE this image by Unity Stamps? Our daughter, Sarah, has a large print of the real photo hanging in her home. Yes, there is a real photo.  I used an embossing folder by Darice (no idea what the name is) for the background panel - PERFECT. The image is colored with colored pencils and the greeting is part of the stamp set.

The Ingredients:

GKD Dark Chocolate and Ivory Card Stock
Unity Stamps Finally Here Stamp Set
Monarch Colored Pencils
Darice Embossing Folder - Name Unknown
SU Stitched Frames Die
Zing Brown Sugar Embossing Powder
Altenew Featured Sentiments Die to Cut Out Greeting
 If you head on over to the Can You Handle the Pressure Blog and play along, you could win this fabulous embossing folder. Isn't it adorable?  Don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created while you are there.

  Until next time dear reader, ASPIRE to be INSPIRED, and here's CELEBRATING your CREATIVE MUSE.
