Happy Birthday

 It's time for a new challenge theme at 
The Sisterhood of Crafters and it is

My friend Dar (and she is also one of the 'sistah's)
gifted me a couple 3D embossing folders for my birthday
and this is one of them.

It embosses so beautifully,
A little hint with the 3D folders is to spritz your card stock
before embossing to prevent cutting into the detail.

I got out some very old Pebbles Cream chalk 'paints'
and colored the embossed image .

I had the die cut banner and the vellum butterfly
already in my stash so added those to the card front.
I think by coloring in the image it takes the embossing folder to a whole new level!

We would love to have you join our challenge and join in with us.
Come visit at The Sisterhood and see all the embossing by my 'sistahs'!

Want some more fun?
Don't forget there is an all new monthly challenge
just for Halloween and you can read about it at
Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge.
