Playing In Paradise #111

Happy Friday everyone, it is time for a new Playing in Paradise challenge. We had a fabulous turnout last week, and who would not want to play along with a fantastic prize each and every week !!
Jessi is our hostess for PPC #111, and the challenge is Emboss Something. I have to admit this is a near and dear to my heart, I love my embossing folders, I add texture to my cards all the time. I even love pulling out my Versamark and doing a little heat embossing with my nice selection of embossing powders.
I am using the current sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches as well.
Isn't this mushroom house adorable, need a card for a good friend who recently brought a house and moved. I added texture to the background layer and oval behind the mushroom with embossing folders.
When I was putting together my card I wanted something whimsical to match my paper so I printed off the mushroom clipart twice and fussy cut them out. I added some Glossy accents to the window and spots, lots of layers made the card a little bulky so I added a simple sentiment to the mushroom.

Supplies: Natural Ivory, Designer Paper - First Edition, ClipArt - Mushroom house, HOTP - Hi, embossing Folders, Glossy Accents, Spellbinders die cuts.

Stop by the Scrapbooker’s Paradise blog to see what the challenge team has created, play along with us for the challenge and you could win a prize.
