DDSB ~ Embossing

pink and blue 004

Hello again, I’m back to show you my card for this weeks Digi Doodle Shop Best Challenge and this week the theme is ‘Embossing’.  You can decide what type of embossing you like, on my card I have used both embossing powder and dry embossing.  I made this card for my Mil who was 60 last week and I always like to add a little butterfly to her cards, its a little thing we have about butterflies, so although I wasn’t too sure that this particular butterfly went with the colour combo, I decided in the end that the meaning was more important than the colour combination.  The beautiful daffodil digi stamp is from the Digi Doodle Shop and I have coloured it using promarkers and a tiny bit of sakura glaze pen (which actually is a type of embossing if you think about it lol) . The gorgeous dp that I’ve embossed with a swirl embossing folder is from First Edition called ‘Hideaway’ and I’ve stamped out the numbers 60 then added clear embossing powder to the edges. I hope you can join in the challenge this week, everybody loves to emboss in some way or another don’t they?
