Lily Pad Cards Embossing Challenge

Hi all! It's me again. =) Thanks for joining me for a card for the Embossing Challenge over at Lily Pad Cards. Here is my card for the challenge:


The challenge is to use embossing techniques on your cards. I dry embossed on the rustic cream card base using a folder from the Damask & Regal Flourishes Set.


This week's sponsor is The Craft's Meow and I used the beautiful Butterfly Kisses Set designed by Nina Brackett for my card. I stamped the fairy on a piece of patterned paper then cut it out using a Labels 20 die. The sentiment is from the Hapiness is... set also created by Nina. The patterned paper is from the Once Upon A Springtime collection by Graphic 45.

That's all I have for today, I am pretty sure. =) Please hop over to Lily Pad Cards and check out what the other Dream Team members came up with for this challenge.



Have a beautiful weekend and thanks for stopping by!



p.s. The sneak peek started at The Craft's Meow Blog. Don't forget to check them out because there are prizes up for grabs! The Craft's Meow is also releasing a card kit that I created on the 15th. All I can say is that they are very different from what I usually do. =)
