BC223 Embossing (Daisy Delight)

Happy Friday! Hope you have all had a wonderful week. It's time for the Blogger Challenge and this week Lisa has challenged us to use, Embossing on our cards/projects. Now you can do whatever type of embossing you'd like. I chose to do 2 types of embossing on my card.

This card also covers the current Cupcake Inspiration challenge. There were 2 delightful cupcake photo's to draw inspiration from. Can you guess which one I picked?

You know it's funny but my mom just doesn't get "Inspiration Photo's" She thinks you have to literally recreate the photo. In this case she would have expected me to use a poodle on my card. However I went with the colors/polka dots as my inspiration.

For my "Embossing" I used Dry embossing by using a Cuttlebug Folder to add that gorgeous raised Daisy border at the bottom of the card. I also used Wet
embossing on the Daisies. Here is a close up showing the colors that are in the embossing powder I used. (So pretty).

Can't wait to see what you come up with. Be sure to link below:

Please note if I haven't commented on your card from last week I will get to it this week. I really try hard to let everyone participating know that their work is appreciated.

This is really pretty. I think it's funny that some people (your mom) take the inspiration challenges much more literal than others. I'm in your camp - I think we are to be a little creative in using the inspiration. I often turn a sketch on it's side as well. the pinks on this work really well. This has a nice layout and impact.
