Pure Innocence

Good morning to all my lovely fellow crafters and  friends. Today sees the launch at Crafting by Designs of our last challenge of 2014. The theme this week is embossing. We have two sposors each giving generous prizes.
Heather Ellis etsy store  
Prize - winners choice of 3 digis

For my DT card I am using an image from Heather Ellis its called Pure Innocence 037. It is just so cute and I loved making this card. As the theme was embossing I used a spellbinder die that I embossed around the edges and I sprinkled the image and sentiment tags with Frantage and heat embossed.
