No embellishments

Hello everybody! How are you today? I'm fine despite the yucky gray day we have here. It's gotten really cold and in the last couple of days. I think I will have to go through my wardrobe over the weekend and bring those pullovers etc. to the front and put t-shirts in the back. I don't think I'll be needing them again this year.

Yesterday in the evening I finally managed to do some crafting. Some time ago one lovely lady sent me a stamped image of Flutter Anya from The greeting farm and I decided to use it on today's card. Isn't she cute? I colored her with Promarkers.


I didn't use any design paper on this card. But I did A LOT of embossing. :) I used 3 different embossing folders - swiss dots and fleur de lis from Cuttlebug and cottage floral from Craft concept. And guess what, I didn't use any embellishments either. Wow, right? I was very tempted to (I wanted to add some glitters on Anya's wings, pearls for the flower centers, use some ribbon ...), but I saw one challenge that as "no embellishments" so I thought I would challenge myself and see if I can do it. :) My sweet friend Jasmina let me borrow her Marianne design die so I could cut out some leaves that I used on this card. The bigger flower is a TH die and small flowers and butterflies are made with my craft punch.

So much from me today. Hugs! xx

I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Yumi and Fumi handmade: Embossing
Bizzy Bec's: Things with wings
Anyone for Anya: No embellishments (my understanding of "no embellishments" is no ribbon, pearls, gems, store bought flowers, lace etc., but if you think flower punches are not ok either, feel free to remove my card :))
