Flower Girl - OSAAT #258

Good morning my friends. I hope you are having a good weekend and the weather is not being too bad to you. It's a little on the chilly side here, but at least we have sunshine. I've hired a new lawn service and they have been busy this week cleaning out all my flower beds, trimming the lawn and fertilizing it. Went to the nursery today to pick out some flowers for the beds and to buy a ton of Milkweed to feed my hungry Monarch caterpillars. It's going to be a great season for them. So far I have 9 that have already made their chrysalis and there are more than 2 do
zen caterpillars crawling around the little milkweed plants I bought today. I'm sure by tomorrow or Monday, they will have devoured all the leaves.

Meantime, it's time for another challenge over at One Stitch At a Time.  This fortnight the theme is Anything Goes With Embossing.  You can use any kind of embossing you like. I decided to use an embossing folder. I have a ton of them and haven't used one in a really long time.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Stitchy Stamps - Flower Girl
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Small Sayings
  • Cardstock - Papertrey Ink - Lavendar Moon; Stampin Up - Whisper White; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Ink - Tuxedo Memento Black
  • Accessories - Heart Doily; Bling from my stash; lace from my stash; Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts; Sizzix Tulip frame embossing folder.
  • Copic Markers - E50, E51, E53; E34; R81, R83, R85; V000, V01, V12; Y11, Y18, Y23; YG11, YG61, YG03
That's it.  I hope you'll pop on over to OSAAT and join in the fun this challenge. You could be the winner of a $10 gift certificate to use in the store.
Or, you could be picked as one of the Top 3.  See you there.

Also, our wonderful Stitchy has told us on the Design Team that you can buy anything in the store at a 25% discount until March 23. She told us that we could pass this on to you, so take advantage of this deal and head on over there.
