DD #91

Hello all. I decided to have some fun and join another challenge this week. Today I am playing along with Dynamic Duos. So here is their color combo for the week

and here is my card
paper-October Afternoon
SRM sentiment & doily
Studio 490 embossing paste
Heidi Swapp stencil 
Well I got some embossing paste a couple weeks ago and have been itching to play with it. This is the first time I have ever used the paste and really love the way it turned out. Since this was the first time I had used the paste I messed up on a few parts of the card but nothing to noticeable. It drys a little transparent but that's probably because I didn't put a very thick  layer on. I am going to make a few more cards using the embossing paste to share with everyone next week and hopefully have some tips/tricks for using it. 
Till next time!

Fusion #4

Hello all my crafty friends. Well its been a while since I posted anything so I thought I would play along with a challenge this week. I have decided to play along with Fusion Card Challenge and I had a wonderful time making my card. Last week a friend of mine really helped my out and I wanted to make her a thank you card so this challenge was a perfect opportunity to make her card.
So here is the inspiration for the card challenge

and here is my card
I used October Afternoon's 9 to 5 collection, Martha Stewart butterflies and an SRM sentiment.
Hope you enjoyed
Happy crafting!!
