Turquoise card

Just a quick post today as I decided last minute to make a card for a colour challenge which ends in a couple of hours.

I ordered the raspberry plate for my Grand Calibur yesterday and it arrived in this mornings post (how about that for speed and effiency) so I was able to have a go with the embosing folder which I got free with a magazine. I've got a couple of Impressabilities but they don't seem to emboss so well and now I've tried out an embossing folder I can see that I will be adding a few to my shopping list!!

I've used a couple of dies - Cheery Lynn DL112 butterflies and Marianne Creatables LR0129 for the flower - as well as the aforementioned freebie flower & butterfly embossing folder. The turquoise card I've used for the dies and to layer the embossed card onto is some I've had for an absolute age and luckily I had some bits of ribbon which are an exact match. Then I just added a pearl to the centre of the flower and a couple of smaller ones in the top corrner.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'Turquoise or Aqua'
Penny's Paper-Crafty challenge Anything Goes' (my 3rd entry)
Deep Ocean challenge 'Letter B' (butterflies) (my 2nd entry)
Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge 'Flowers and Pearls' (my 3rd entry)
Crafty Catz challenge 'Dies and Punches'
Paper Creator's Crafts challenge 'Flowery Delight'

Thanks for droppng by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend
