Chocolate, Coffee & Cards – Embossing!

Hello, how are things in the world of you and yours?  Well I hope!

A new challenge starts today over on the Chocolate, Coffee and Cards challenge blog and our theme this fortnight is Embossing!

So the Choccies had some fab images to work with from our wonderful sponsor this time 
I chose to use the fabulously cute Kidz Girl – Cat available here

Now I don’t do enough embossing (heaven knows I have enough embossing folders!!) and I have never done a White on White card before!  So this was a good time to right those wrongs!! OK so my card is not entirely WoW as I coloured my image but I got a tad carried away with embossing onto Centura Pearl as it always looks so fab!

Dies:  Sue Wilson ‘Classic 3D Bow’ – Tonic ‘Nesting Rectangles’
Embossing Folders: Couture Creations borders (can’t remember the name) – Sizzix ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment – Embossalicious ‘Petite Dot’
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – Centura Pearl (gotta love it!)
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers and pencils
Others: Nothing else, that was it, all finished, all done, The End!

I hope you will join us for our great challenge. Check out the blog for all the wonderful DT inspiration and the fab prize we have up for grabs!!

Thanks so much for looking and have a great day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
