Quirky emboss it.

Myriam is leaving the Quirky Team to pursue other interests, and this is her last challenge to us. We will miss her loads, she is so talented.
Quirky Crafts has three sponsors for this challenge, Sweet Pea Stamps, Limited Runs and Robyn's Fetish.
My first card is made with a Limited Runs digi set called Birds on a Wire with another of their digis called Birdhouse 2 set. The sentiment and a few more come with the birds on a wire set.
I coloured the digis with Promarkers, cut out the panel with Spellbinders and fussy cut the birdhouse. The background is embossed with a set of three little embossing folders that came free with Card Making and Papercrafts magazine a while back, and I enhanced the embossing by rubbing chalks over it, although I don't fix them with hairspray because I am allergic to it!

I am running late with my Sweet Pea card but I will try and beat the deadline, if not it will be along later.

Hop on over to Quirky Crafts to see some even better examples of embossing and to play along with the team. All you need to do is include any kind of embossing on any kind of project.

This card has fluttered into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
Addicted to Stamps - make your mark (Wed/Fri)
Sketch Saturday - sketch
Fab n Funky - things with wings (Aug)

  10. Hello, Cazzy! Your card is so super cute! I really like those cute embossing folders you used - perfect for scene cards, which I love! The birds are so fun and I LOVE the sentiment - made me laugh!

    Thank you for your kind comments on my blog! Yes, I am so grateful to have won some awards and prizes - you have no idea how it lifts my spirits. I don't work (I have no income or pension) so when I win, I get new crafty goodies to play with! But on the other hand, I spend a lot of time at it. I have some health issues and my activities are quite limited at times, so this is how I spend my time - blog hops, challenges, etc. I will share my secret to winning - entering a gazillion challenges with each card! But in all seriousness, my illness flared up this summer and I completely lost my mojo! I had to take a blog break but I think I'm back now - feeling a bit better anyway! Hoping to get back to making more cards!

    Wishing you all the best and I really appreciate your encouraging words! Enjoy your weekend!
