Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 1: embossing

The day has finally arrived!

I am so thrilled to be on the design team for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge blog right from the beginning. If you haven't visited there yet, please do so and see what other members of the team have made for Challenge 1: embossing - and please join in the challenge.

The challenge is being sponsored by Lacy Sunshine who will be giving the winner a $20 gift certificate to spend in their online shop. Lacy Sunshine provided the team with images to use and mine is 'Daisy Sue'.

I decided to put my embossing on the inside of the card, cutting away the front to reveal some of this from the outside. The embossing was done with the Embossaliacious 'floral vine' folder, brushed with spiced marmalade distress ink.

The main piece of patterned paper on the front is an offcut of My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup Girl 'sweet song'. The torn ovals behind the image are offcuts of pieces from a magazine freebie. I coloured the image with spectrum noirs. I printed the sentiment and added the piece of ribbon.

I decorated the inside of the oval with a piece of paper from my offcuts box.
