Krafty Girl Challenges # 107

This is my second post of the day. Please click here or scroll down to see my post for The Craft's Meow Preview Day1. Thanks!

Hello all! It's me again. =) I am sharing a card for this week's Krafty Girl Challenges.


This week's hostess is Diana Pickering and she challenged us to use Heat or Dry Embossing. I did dry embossing on the patterned papers. Gotta love the textures! The prize of this week's challenge is Takara which Diana used for her beautiful card.


I used the super fun Lillith for my card. Her facial expression just makes me smile. I guess not every girl can be that calm when there is a frog sitting on her head. =) Lillith is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Large die. It's then matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Petite Scalloped Ovals Large die before I stitched the layers together. The sentiment piece is cut and embossed using a Classic Ovals Small die and matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Classic Scalloped Ovals Small die.


The patterned paper is from Honey Cake 6x6 Designer Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye. The blue/aqua piece is embossed using Regal Flourishes Texture Fade and the floral piece is embossed using D'vine Swirl. I also use a Classic Petal Edgeabilities die on the blue/aqua piece for a little interest. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Also, just to let you know that this week's Frugal Friday Specials are Mr. Punkinhead, Rudy the Reindeer, Billy Blyth, Speedy the Turtle, Roxy and You are a Treat. These stamps are on sale for 40-50% off and the sale ends on Sunday.

That's all from me. Please check out what the other Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests came up with for this challenge here. Hope you can join us this week! =)
