Pixie in the Garden - Embossing challenge DT make

Hello again,

It is time for a new challenge over at Creative Moments, and this time the optional theme is Embossing/ This can be heat embossing or dry embossing, of which I have used both on my card.

I got some new card blanks just before Christmas and have only just re-realised that this pack has lilac card blanks in it! So I used a lilac base. A strip of white card was embossed with papermania small daisies embossing folder and cut along one edge with patterned scissors. The image is from and is Pixie Charlee. I coloured her with pastel colours of promarkers as I wanted a Spring feel to the card. I added PVA glue (using a Stix2 glue pen) to the wings and heat embossed using 'Tropical' embossing powder. I attached a frame tat I had in my stash over the image and placed to the right of the card base before adding pastel pearls around the edge. Finally I added a birthday sentiment.

Of course, once I had done all this the first time, I noticed that te card opened the wrong way up, and had to carefully peal everything off and re-stick it down! ALWAYS double check which way the card opens before committing lol.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
PFP #333 Luscious Locks
modsquad The great outdoors (pixie in floral arch)
scrapbook stamp society #85 Embossing
SSS #403

Also, as promised, here is an update on my dinos - now at over 55 hours!

Thank you for looking.
