Pick 5

'Pick5' is the challenge for 365 day 2:

1. Favorite color - purple
2. Favorite design technique - embossing
3. Favorite embellie - flowers
4. Least favorite color - orange
5. Favorite card size (dimensions) square 6 x 6

The background paper is DCWV pocket full of posies - it's ages since I've used any of these papers, but this was just right for the colours I wanted to use.

The strip of embossed purple satin mirror card is actually the same colour purple as the flower, but it looks darker because of the angle of the flash photo. I used the Creative Expressions crackle emhossing folder.

It was very difficult to pin down my favourite technique to embossing, because if I'm asked the same question tomorrow it might well be stamping!

This is also for:

Fussy & fancy: embossing
Simply create 38: power of flowers
Gingerloft 13: use those flowers
Little Claire 2: flowers
Crafty Ann 35: birthday card
Aud sentiments 23: birthday
Critter 54: sentiment
Ann's creative nook 126: bring on the colours
Wild orchid 18: anything goes
Papertake weekly: anything goes + optional: something old (the DCWV paper)
Card cupids: anything goes
Aly's: anything goes
