Simon Says.............Emboss It !!!!!!!!!

It's Wednesday again and time for our weekly Simon Says Stamp challenge

The lovely Marcea our 'old' teamie has agreed to rejoin the team !! Welcome home huni!!!

Thanks for all your fabulous entries to our 'For a Child' Challenge, we hope you remember to pop one or 2 in the post to the poorly children xx

Please ddon't forget that we have the 'Children's Anything Goes Challenge running too which is specifically for children who are aged between 2 and 16 years to enter.

This week we would like you to EMBOSS IT so wet or dry embossing is OK :-)

The DT have been using stamps from Belles 'n Whistles this week - so many cute images ! You don't HAVE to use them but if you have any we would love to see them :-)

I've used Belle sitting with Teddy and coloured her with Copics. The papers I've used are Prima Botanical papers - I love these they are so pretty and they include some which decorate the inside perfectly - great when you're short of time!!
I've embossed the pink panel with the checkerboard folder from the Tim Holtz Checkerboard and Cracked embossing folder set and I've stitched the edges and those of the image also.  The flowers are cut with a Nellie Snellen punch & emboss set which I felt were perfect for this card and image. The corners are stamped with a Basic Grey stamp, the sentiment is an 'antique' (probably!!) and I've added a couple of Trinket pins to the ribbon from my stash.

I forgot to add a photograph of the inside showing how fabulous some of these papers are for this use.

I've just added a little heart pocket cut with Spellbinder nestabilities and a small tag to write on.

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !! See the NEWEST stuff on the All New Just In Page For fabulous tutorials, inspiration and candy you should keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Blog too !!! :-)
