Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was pretty good. I went on a date with my hubby on Friday night and saw the new Pirates.  I loved it, but hubby didn't think so highly of it.  

I'm back with a new challenge at the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge blog! This time around we want to see all your work with LOTS OF LAYERS AND EMBOSSING.  You need at least 3 layers on your card and either dry or wet embossing.  For my card I used dry embossing on the blue piece.  I ran it through the cuddlebug with the swirls folder.  You can see a close up here:

I was going for a water/wave feel! haha!

I used one of the super cute image from Angie's new store Love To Stamp.  This is a Little Darlings Stamp called "Sailboat of Dreams".   Incidentally, Love to Stamp is sponsoring the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge this week so you could win a prize from them.

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Little Darlings - Sailboat of Dreams from Love to Stamp
Inks:  Distress Inks
Paper:  K&Co. - Watercolor Bouquet
Tools:  Swirl Cuddlebug Folder, MS Pine Branch Punch

We'd love to see you come out and join in our challenge.  You have two weeks to join in!

Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by!

Big hugs, Dena
