First Design Team Project!

Hi and hope all are well in Blogland! Today's a first for me in a couple of ways - my first DT project and my first go at scheduling a post (so I'm just hoping it works and doesn't get lost over t'internet somewhere!).
While you're browsing in Blogland have a look by the CraftyCatz Challenge Blog for this week's challenge - embossing! We had a couple of images to play with from this week's sponsor of the prize, The Paper Shelter, and I chose this one. Not the sort of image I'd usually pick but it's great to do something out of the 'comfort zone' and I enjoyed doing it!

This is what I came up with! A couple of embossed panels in coredinations card with Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder, gorgeous stripy paper from First Edition 'Birdsong' pad, and Marianne die cut swirl and flowers. The sentiment stamp was a freebie with a magazine which I've stamped and added a little Stickles round the edge.

I've coloured the digi image with promarkers and prisma pencils and then added a little bit of glitz (i.e. Stickles!) - isn't she a cutie!
So dig out your embossing folders and head over to CraftyCatz - join us for this week's challenge! 
Back soon, Kim x
