I WOZ INSPIRED !!

Hello - I am back again ultra quick today !!!  I went off to browse the Challenges to enter my other card and I saw a Theme over on SPEEDY FOX & FRIENDS entitled "Cut-Away Embossing". What's that, I thought to myself and went over to have a look. Well......... I can tell you I was totally inspired - thunderstruck there on the spot by the brilliant creations their DT had made AND there was a little Tutorial there too, showing how it was done.  :-D
No sooner had I seen and digested, I rushed off to my cupboards to firk out the necessary accoutrements !!! Here is what I came up with, which fits perfectly for another of my card commissions :-) YaY !!



Really enjoyed this one and would deffo make one of these again :-)
I edged all the pieces with the Royal Blue ink and printed Happy Birthday with both inks on the stamp at the same time.

I used:

Blue base card 5" x 7"
Cuttlebug Embossing folder - Kassie's Brocade
Martha Stewart Edge Punch
Archival inks - Starry, Starry Night and Royal Blue
Blue gauze ribbon
Sheena Douglas Leaf die from 'Wild Rose' set
Foam strips
Flowers by SAMFLORA

Thank you for peeping :-)
