BasicGrey Challenge Blog - Challenge # 12

Sorry about my absence all week, I'm not a well bunny at the moment and all I want is my bed which I can't have because my DH is away all day and I have the girls to look after. I think I have the beginnings of a chest infection and typical, it only gets worse as the Doctors close their doors.

Anyway, down to business. Over at the BasicGrey Challenge Blog this week, the theme is embossing. It can be dry embossing or heat embossing or any other type of embossing you can think of !

This is the card I made earlier in the week.

The patterned paper is BasicGrey Euphoria (yes, I finally managed to get my hands on a 6x6 pad and it is beauuuuutiiiful !).

I embossed with my cuttlebug some pink card and distressed it with some white ink.

The images are an Inkadinkado stamp with no name ;o( and I heat embossed the image with metallic purple embossing powder. I then rubbed over the images with pink and purple Colorbox chalks.

The flowers and beads are from my stash.

Back to the sofa now. Hope you all have a good weekend and keep warm - it is freezing here today.

P.S. Martine is also holding a DT call on the BasicGrey Challenge Blog. Looking forward to meeting my new playmates !
