Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #32

Today it's my turn to host the Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge!  I am SOO ready for spring so what better for a challenge than a SPRING theme using FLOWERS.  I wanted to focus on embossing for my card challenge today......I don't do this enough but it has just beautiful results.



My cluster of flowers was created using the masking technique along with heat embossing.  I also challenged myself to use this birthday set that had yet to see ink!



My card uses the colors from this week's CR84FN challenge.......beautiful spring colors!



I'd love for you to play along with my challenge!  Check it out over at the Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge Blog found HERE.  Have a wonderful day!

Great card Amy! Those flowers from In Bloom look gorgeous embossed. Love the color combo too. Just to let you know, someone asked on the Dolls blog comments section if they could do dry embossing for the challenge.
