I'll be very surprised if I actually have any followers left on my blog as I've been MIA for a few weeks following a family bereavement but you'll be pleased to know I'm now back and ready and raring to go.

My first project back for the Polkadoodles DT is an inspiration post for the challenge 'Add some embossing'. For my shaped easel card I opted for the oh so versatile Bonbon Belles Collection

the entire 2 discs are positively rammed with characters, digi stamps, embellishments, toppers, cutting files & papers. It was difficult to decide what to make! I used the button backing paper as my inspiration and went from there.

 I actually embossed in 2 ways on my card 1, putting some blue card in a button effect embossing folder and inking it up to make it 'pop' and 2, after printing out 3 each of the flower embellishments I used a ball tool to emboss the back of the petals to give them shape and dimension before layering up and placing on my project.To finish off I used 3 buttons on the base as a stopper. Here's a close up shot which hopefully shows up the layers.

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.
