It's a new challenge at Sarah Hurley this week, and we are excited because we are lucky enough to be sponsored by Handy Hippo! Handy Hippo is a friendly online craft supplies shop with a great range of rubber stamps and other card making goodies - including plenty of embossing folders and dies for the Cuttlebug. Their website has lots of information on crafting techniques, plus a great selection of free card project ideas to suit crafters of all abilities so please pop over and visit them!
They chose a theme of Embossing this week and have given us some embossing folders as a prize! There will be 3 for the winner and one each for 2nd and 3rd place. You can see them on their website here
Here is my card for this week's challenge
I used some of Sarah's digital papers for the balloons (which can be found in the store here. I embossed the balloons using the Houndstooth Cuttlebug folder and then raised a few of them with pop dots. I added some thick twine to use as strings and then tied it with the red twine. A simple sentiment from Sarah's store and the card is finished. The edge embossing was done with my Scor-Buddy. Just a nice touch I think. I hope you enjoy this card and don't forget to head over to the challenge blog to play along for that great prize this week from Handy Hippo!
