Polkadoodle Challenge 12 - Embossing

It's Friday and as you know, every other Friday is rather busy blog wise for me!  If you are looking for the Simply Create Too challenge its underneath; Jellypark will be coming along soon but for now, here is the new Polkadoodle challenge!  And this week the challenge is:


I've gone for the dry kind and used two Cuttlebug folders - Swiss Dots and D'Vine Swirls.  The pink and blue papers are from Candy Doodles cd which is one that I use over and over again for pastels and calm colours plus you get the option of slightly distressed as well as solid - both very good in my book!

I've used a template from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine plus a dash of inspiration too!  I've cut the fancy bottom of the card by using a Nestie as a template.  The tags have been handwritten and cut with a Sizzix tag die.  Everything else is from my stash.

Good luck with the Polkadoodles challenge!
