Can You Handle the Pressure - WEATHER

 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:


This is what I came up with:
I just adore this sweet little image from Penny Black. It's really old and may even be retired, but it makes me smile. It's colored with my Zigs on Altenew watercolor paper.

 The Ingredients:
Recollections Teal, Purple and Black Card Stock
Altenew Watercolor Paper
Penny Black Squeeze Till I Squeak Stamp
Zig Clean Color Markers
SU Fabulous Frames Die
Paper Studio Star Gazer Patterned Paper
Tim Holtz Dotted Embossing Folder
Studio Katia Irridescent Raindrop Baubles
GKD Greeting - Stamp Set Unknown

If you head on over to the Can You Handle the Pressure Blog and play along, you could win this fabulous embossing folder.  Don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created while you are there. And I can't wait to see all your wonderful designs!!
 Until next time dear reader, ASPIRE to be INSPIRED!
