Little Red Wagon Challenge #25 - Ruffles

Wow! I can not believe how many great submissions there were this past week with Dry Embossing! Everyone did such a wonderful job with this challenge that I can not wait to see what everyone can do with some Ruffles! I decided to play around with a little ribbon and came up with this layout titled Friends for Life!

Details: I made the flowers a little glittery using some Glitter and UTEE, I coloured some other paper flowers with my copics and did the same with some pearl centres so that I had a matching colour.... This layout is actually a double page one so I have also attached below the 2nd page to the layout!

Don't forget to check out what all the other Girlfriends did! I am looking forward to seeing what Everyone comes up with! Please feel free to add your link to your project below! ~Avril

Little Red Wagon Challenge #24

Happy Wednesday! It is challenge day here at Little Red Wagon and I have chosen dry embossing. There are so many different ways to achieve this effect and I am sure that we will get some amazing entries this week.

I decided to use my ScorPal to create a border on the front of my card. This is super easy to do and it added a lot to my card. I just used scraps of pattern paper for the small squares. I added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink (I couldn't resist), some ribbon from American Crafts, a crochet flower from my dear friend Regan and a little rub-on in the top left corner.

I can't wait to see what my girlfriends have put together for this challenge. Be sure to check it out. I hope you find some time to play along with us. Be sure to link up your post using Mr. Linky below! Have fun!

It is my first ever sketch and I hope it inspires you to create something awesome!With the fabulous Spring weather we have been having, I make up this sweet little card that reminds me of warm weather days when I was a little girl. (I might be able to still jump rope, but it wouldn't be pretty!)
