Did You Ever Have One of Those Days?

That's how things have been running for me the last couple of weeks. You know, Murphy's Law: "Whatever can go wrong, will".  So I thought this cute little guy was appropriate for my card for this week's Embossing Challenge at Digi Doodle Shop's Best.  Yep, that's right, it's one of every one's favorite challenges: embossing.  We'd love to see what you can create.  The prize is a gift certificate to the store for $10.00.  You don't know what you're missing if you've never used any of Judy or Mom's images.  Also don't forget to stop by and check out all of the lovely cards by the rest of the Design Team.

I used a Sizzix embossing folder that I've wanted to use for ages, but I thought it needed a special card, and this fits perfectly.  The top color is more of an aqua rather than green.  The DP came with this gradation.  I used more open stock paper I purchased, MS's punch, buttons and a tissue paper flower that I made.  I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  I guess you can also tell that I've distressed the edges with an aqua color also.  The material tying the buttons is twine.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Frosted Designs - twine (tying my buttons)
Sew Many Cards - anything
Stamp Something - anything
Designed 2 Delight - handmade flowers
Crafty Cardmakers - embossing
Scrappy Frogs - anything
The Paper Shelter - distressing

Don't forget that I have CANDY for NEW and CURRENT followers.  Just jump to top of page. I only need 6 more new followers until I check everything out and do the draw for the prize.   Thanks for stopping by.
