Back to work, back to blogging, and of course back to my clean green Cuttlebug machine! :) for challenge #4, which is to emboss on patterned paper! I found this hard!! so i've kept my design very simple(the first couple of efforts went in the recycle bin!!!)
What's that saying..... 'less is more'...... Trudi, really are challenging me!!!!

I've cut my roses from a sheet of Basic Grey 'lollipop shoppe' Marzipan which i've backed with bazzill black cardstock, and run through the CB Swiss Dots folder. The ferns are made with my McGill punch(i think there is a similar Martha Stewart one!) The sentiment is a HOTP acrylic which has been inked with Ranger Archival black. Card blank is 158mm square, and i've edged it with Colorbox cats eye in Charcoal.

Hope you can find some time to play along this week, i would really love to see what you can do(better than me i'm sure!!) and don't forget to check out the other girls on the DT for their fab creations :)
Thanks so much for your visit :) see you very soon!
