The Flower Challenge: Embossing & Altenew's Card Challenge

Hi my crafty friends!
I'm playing along with the Flower Challenge, a blog I've fallen in love with, where
the call is to use embossing: heat or dry.
Let's hear it for florals!

I used a stamp and die set from Altenew called Book Club.
Before I embossed my Aqua Mist yardstick, I stamped the leaves from
 Wallpaper Art (Altenew)and inked the leaves loosely.
sentiment PTI Birthday Classics: June.

The flowers were colored on Olive Twist cardstock with Faber-Castel Polychromos pencils 
after embossing in white.

My birthday stash is growing steadily. Don't you just love having birthday cards
ready to give?

The flower Challenge has a prize from Altenew this week, and runs through
the 25th. Plenty of time to play along...

Altenew's photo challenge is pictured here:

Cool photo with so many possibilities!

Have a blessed week!
