We are onto a NEW CHALLENGE this week at JUST SOME LINES BLOG and I am the host this time!  I have chosen
as the theme. Can be wet or dry embossing or a bit of both. Can't wait to see what you create!!

You have until Friday, August 26 at 11:59pm EST to play along in our challenge for the chance to win a $12 credit to JUST SOME LINES SHOP. You are not required to use a JUST SOME LINES image, however doing so will give you 2 entries instead of 1 in our drawing for the winner.

I have created a sample for you using 2 images from JUST SOME LINES SHOP - Garden Corner 2 and Bird on Branch 1. I used the PNG files for both images and merged them ever so slightly to make one scene. I colored it with Copics and Atyou Spicas and cut out with paper trimmer. I used 2 different embossing folders - flowers are from Sizzix and dots from Quickutz. I hope you like it, I LOVE using embossing folders - so many cool techniques and ways to use them. Ribbon is from my stash, DP is Wild Rose Studio and CS is SU and American Crafts textured. Sentiment is from Flourishes clear stamp set and cut with nestie.

Fellow DT members Jenn and Laura have also helped make some wonderful samples for this challenge. Thanks so much girls!  Go to JUST SOME LINES BLOG to check out their awesome creations and to join our challenge:)
