Can You Handle the Pressure - Twist - Vines / Greenery

 Hello Friends, thanks for stopping by today!

We have a new challenge starting today over on our new Can You Handle The Pressure Challenge Blog and the TWIST theme is ... 


Remember, the twist is optional but you MUST use an embossing folder on our projects to qualify for the prize.  Heat embossing is also permitted but only in conjunction with an embossing folder.

 Here's what I've created to inspire you today.  

These days it seems I can't keep enough sympathy cards in my sale boxes.  How sad is that!  But it is what it is so here's a card to sympathy to have on hand.

I've used an old Cuttlebug embossing folder ... sorry don't know the name of it ... which after running through with white card stock, I water colored it with tombow markers, water & artist brush.  I've matted it using old Stampin' Up card stock 'Old Olive' and used the cut off scrap to die cut the Tutti Designs sentiment.  A few prima flowers w/Nuvo centers and my card is complete.

I do hope you'll come check out our new blog and play along.
AND yep ... we will be offering prizes at our challenges ... that's always a fun surprise!

Here's today's prize offering . . .
