Pink Peonies

Hi everyone!! I'm finally back in blogland!! This last week has been an absolute nightmare with all the blogger problems - I felt so cut off! I hadn't realised quite how much I relied on it and how much time I spent in the land of blog!! Anyways, I won't go on about it too much cos I know loads of you had problems and it's never good to dwell on things! I've got lots of cards to share with you this week though - and a bit of news!!
But for now - there's a new challenge starting today over at Paper Cupcakes and this week, Molly wants to see us using embossing of any kind on our cards/projects, it can be dry or heat - take your pick! Here's my card:
I've used the Paper Cupcakes image 'Peony in Bottle', which is free to download this week, if you want to take part in the challenge, just hop over here. I've coloured the image with promarkers and used glossy accents on the bottle. I've embossed some bright pink DCWV card with a cuttlebug embossing folder and used some gorgeous Prima paper. All I've added is a Craftwork Cards sentiment, a border cut with a MS punch and some gems from my stash.
I've used Sketch #21 from LORA crafts and I'm also going to enter my card into the following challenges:
OK - that's about it. I really hope you like it and I'd love you to leave me a comment and let me know what you think - and let me know what you've been up to while blogger been playing up and how you all are - I've missed you, my blog buds!!! Don't forget, if you want to take part in the challenge, you don't have to use a Paper Cupcakes image but it's great when you do and being as you can get the lovely image that I've used on my card for FREE, then why wouldn't you!!?? Bye for now................xxxx
