Summer Garden


A new challenge starts today at
Can You Handle The Pressure
and as always it's an ANYTHING goes challenge
with an optional Twist of 'SUMMER'.

Summer to me is full of gardening, never ending gardening lol!
I went with the optional twist and made a fun summer card using a
never been used before Cuttlebug Freshly Picked embossing folder!
I ran it thru on a piece of Cord-inations navy blue paper
then used a sanding block to sand it down.
I also stamped a never before used stamp from Flourish's 
Garden Dreams stamp set.

I hope you will join us at Can You Handle The Pressure
easy rules are you need to use an embossing folder.
Make sure to visit the CYHTP challenge blog to see
all the fabulous creations from the design teams!!

Entering the following fun challenges:

I LOVE that EF and the sanding is a fabulous technique to use with it, especially on the navy card stock. Wonderful card, Diane!

What a cute embossing folder! The sanding really shows off the design, especially with the rich blue. Now, I know you've had that Flourishes set for a while. Good on you for using it after all this time. It turned out darling!
