Lemon & Lilac!

Its the start of a new challenge over at My Time To Craft today. This week we want to see your creations that include 

EMBOSSING!

whether that is heated or dry it doesn't matter!

I have used a super cute freebie image that you can find here....please only request the image if your going to use her. I think this lady is an awesome artist & I will be spending a fair few pennies in her store lol!!

So so pretty. I love that oval and fence dies and the colors you've used on that sweet image. Not sure on the sentiment either - it could be so many things. Sometimes I just leave it off so I can decide later when I complete the inside :o) Thanks for joining us this week at 'ABC'Challenges.
