In The Pink Big Bouquet

Good morning everyone I'm back again today as its the launch of a new fortnightly challenge over at In The Pink the theme for this challenge is Embossing so lots of embossing options you can use but remember to use Pink more than any other colour on your design..

We have a great prize of £15 for the winner from our generous sponsor.

For my Design Team card I used a lovely stamp from Lili of The Valley called Big Bouquet and used an embossing folder and some heat embossing on my design.
