creative card crew

boy am i sooo behind with everything today i'm meeting myself coming back,its been one of those days where no matter what you do you never seem to catch up and get everything done but hey theres always tomorrow!! i managed to get this card done while the kids were at karate and as my anyas had landed on my doormat this morning i just had to ink em up i hope there is a uk supplier who will have the new anya set on release date cos i dont think i could handle another 10 day wait for them to arrive from the usa.




this card is for the creative card crew challenge which is any form of embossing, for this i embossed using the swiss dots embossing folder and embossed the nestie mats and used a martha stewart zigzag embossed punch, the papers are basic grey boxer and the edges are inked with black soot distress ink the image is an anya coloured with promarkers. the flowers are x-cut punched and the roses are wild orchid crafts and the swirls are hotp.


Thanks for popping in

Hugs
