Cuttlebug Challenge

I made this card in a class then brought it home and made it my own with the flowers and pearls :) This is also my first challenge card at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot.
Embossed with a number folder. I think the stamp is from SU! because the owner of the store used to be a demonstrator. The lighter green is velum. The darker green was embossed and then stressed out with a nail buffer! Never would have thought about using that!

So glad you've joined us for one of our challenges Gail and with such a lovely card too! Love the green, especially the paler vellum, all beautifully embossed! It's amazing the effects you can achieve with a Cuttlebug and a nail buffer! ;o) Thanks for playing along with our number challenge this week at http://cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com/ and I hope you'll join us again!

Gail--the nail buffer is a GREAT idea! Who would'a thunk it, huh? ;)

Speaking of nails...Do let me know whether the candy has arrived so I can stop biting my nails about it...it's been in USPS hands for weeks now.

Have a great day,
