One Stop Craft Challenge # 32 - Under Pressure

Evening everyone!

Hope you are all well and have had a nice Monday. I had that Monday morning feeling today when I got to work, but we ended up having a great day as we kept having fits of the giggles! Don't ask me why - it was just one of those crazy days. I am 39 going on 13 so it doesn't take much for me to have a laugh!

Anyway, here I am with another card. I actually made this one last week but forgot to post it on here. I had a play with my yummy papers from the new Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen range (LLB) - they're lovely to work with and very dramatic too! The black and white paper around the outside was part of the lovely candy I won from my buddy Judy. Loads of lovely papers to choose from and I love the monotones as they tie in so well with other colours.

I'm entering my card into this week's One Stop Craft Challenge where the brief is to emboss. My Sizzix die cut flower has been embossed and distressed, so I'm guessing that will count. I love this Gorjuss image and would like to thank my gorgeous friend Jo for sending it to me, cheers hun ;o)

Before I go I must just warn you about something........... Basic Grey are about to release two new collections; Lemonade and June Bug....... and you can see them here, YUM! SORRY!!!!! ;o)
