Forever Friends challenge 44 - embossing: heat or dry

Good afternoon everybody!

It's a gorgeous day here in Waterford, these past few days have been fab! It's sooo annoying - the whole time it was pouring rain, my crafty mojo shriveled up and died, and now that it's sunny and I want to go outside, I have loads of crafty ideas!! Grrr!

A quick enough post for now, because I have a doctor's appointment this afternoon that I completely forgot about lol, so I have to rush around the place getting ready!

Today over at Forever Friends Challenge Blog, our latest fortnightly challenge theme is

Embossing - Heat or Dry

and we have two lovely sponsors this week: 
For our randomly selected winner, we are sponsored by the wonderful
who are offering our winner their choice of 7 digis from the store

For our Forever Friends Favourite winner, we are sponsored by fabulous
who is supplying the winner with 1 digi from a choice of four; please see our main blog post for further details on these and to get more information :)

For my card, I used dry embossing, so here it is :) I also used Michelle Perkett's image Charity Angel, it was so nice to colour in!

The image as I said before is from our sponsor Michelle Perkett and it's called Charity Angel. The flowers and ribbon are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the swirls are Marianne Design, the pearls are from Ribbon Girl, the sentiment is from lili of the Valley, the doily and butterfly are from my stash, and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume! My embossed paper was done with Spellbinders Impressabilities and the other two papers (there's one under where the bow is, it's just hard to see in the photo) are from First Edition Dreamcatchers pack.

A closeup of the image, which I coloured with Promarkers and detailed with Stickles :)

My flowers, also laced with Stickles

I love these butterflies, I got them for half-nothing in my local craftshop's clearance sale last year, I'm kicking myself that I didn't buy more of these beauties when they were sooo cheap!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking - and come join us at Forever Friends!
I'll be back later with another post :)
