Hi everyone! I am super duper late posting this card...it has been a crazy week and a bit and she has just been sitting on my desk all lonesome! So have you seen this month's challenge over at Craft-a-lot? It is embossing and you can use any image but make sure there is a unity stamp somewhere on your card. To get the really nice effect on my embossed cardboard, I lightly sanded the raised pattern.


For the layout of my card I have cased one of my fabulously talented bloggy friends; Tracy. I am sure most of you have seen her work but if you haven't check out her blog here. She is so talented and does some of the best layouts I have seen! :) I have taken one of her layouts and added my usual ten thousand embellies - hope you like it Tracy! :)


And here is Tracy's card so you can have a peeky :)


I love the Elisabeth Bell images. This is Picked Sweet - isn't she adorable! :) I used my copics to colour her up and these are the colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R11
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Outfit: Blue BG000, BG72, BG09, BG49 Purple V000, V01, V04, V06, V09
Flowers: R81, R85, R59
Grass: YG03, YG63, YG67, G28


Thanks for stopping by :)
