Hi I'm back again today with my second post (please scroll down to see my CraftyCatz post!).  It's time for a new challenge over at Polkadoodles and this week Team A have the challenge of 'embossing'!  So you can either do some dry embossing or sprinkle over your embossing powders!

For my inspiration card I've used the Polkadoodles 'Back to Nature' cd-rom 

I just love those swirly peacock feathers and the lilac and green colours.  I've used a tag from the cd and added a sentiment.  Then punched some eyelets in and threaded ribbon through. I've added an embossed panel of coredinations card using the Cuttlebug 'birds and swirls' folder and lightly sanded it back. Then a few flowers from WOC and Joanna Sheen. The swirl is a Marianne die cut. 

So quite a simple design really, but I was quite pleased with the overall look and thought it could be suitable for a variety of uses! 
So I do hope that you'll join us at Polkadoodles - and have a look at the fantastic inspiration from the DT! 
Back soon,
