Ecstatically Embossing!

**Post #2 for the day, please scroll down to see my Anita Be Stampin'/Cheerful Stamp Pad post**

Happi Monday, everyone!  It's time for another challenge over at the Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge Blog.  Woo hoo!!  This week was Happi Sister Stef's pick, and she chose Embossing!  Unfortunately, Stef had to leave the DT, but we are still thinking about her and miss her dearly.  We were thrilled to use her challenge, and here is my card:

Isn't that image just FABULOUS?!?  It's a new one, Splish Splash, and I just HAD to use it.  It was very intense cutting it out (especially around the water lines) but was SO worth it.  The image was colored with Copics, and Stickles were added in strategic places.  The flowers I punched out with a new punch.  Embossing folders (the sun and the purple paper) are both from Sizzix.  The butterfly I learned from a lovely tutorial over on Amy Ely's blog.

Ok, well you've seen what I've done...head on over to the Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge Blog to see the fantastic cards by the other Happi Sisters.  Also, we have a new Happi Sister, so you'll definitely want to head over and meet her!  Don't forget, you can use any image to enter the Happileigh Scrappin' challenge, but if you use a Happileigh Scrappin' image your entry is counted twice!  Also, you can enter the challenge as many times as you want, but you can only win one prize per challenge.  If you don't have any Happileigh Scrappin' images, you can find some beautiful freebies here, or you can visit the store here.  See you soon!
