The Emerald Faeries Challenge - GDT

It's time for a new challenge at The Emerald Faeries Challenge Blog. I actually thought I was late in getting this card done but I guess that's what you get when you look at the clock after midnight! Anyway, i got this card made on time and have even had time to schedule this post (I'm probably yelling at kids to get ready for school as you read this :))
So our challenge for this fortnight is to use embossing - it can be wet or dry or both - you choose!! I went with dry embossing. I showed a card to my friend Ang today (who is also a fellow crafter and my training buddy) and she said I always do blue/teal and brown cards (and she was right) so I decided to move away from those colours and go bright and bold!! :) Thanks Ang cos I love how it turned out...

I went through my paper stash first to see what colours to colour The Larakins and came across this Kaszazz SB paper, I then embossed some purple cardstock. I found some yellow ribbon which I added to cover the join of the two papers! I then coloured The Larakins in with tria markers and used Twinkling H20's on their wings!!. I attached The Larakins to the card with a brad and then to finish off the card I added some kindyglitz afew rhinestones to the flowers on the SB paper and  made some shrinky butterflies and stuck them on!! A perfect spring card which is not the kind of weather we are having here but I can dream!! Why not head on over the Emerald faeries Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the DT got up to!!
