Embossing Folder Challenge


This card is for the KLSNS Challenge over on PCP. It's also going to be for my granddaughter's birthday. I was finally cleaning up all my scraps the other night (a whole box load, but I got them organized and put away) and I had several scraps of embossed papers. I also had an extra colored Tilda. Amazingly, Tilda matched some of the scraps, so I went with it. Then, on Monday Leslie Miller, who I always get inspired by, had two adorable cards and used the technique that I applied to my HB layer and the "circle" layer. You can click on the link above to read about this technique. Then Kristine posted a very similar idea, although she seems to have done hers in a different order. I love the idea and want to play with it more as it presents a few challenges that I hope to iron out. At any rate, I like how it turned out and would encourage you to play along with the challenge. I believe it goes through the end of the month and there is a prize from KLSNS. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful April day.
