I have used 2 different embossing folders on my card; Cuttlebug "Happy Birthday" and "Swiss Dots" folders. The background is made using the "Happy Birthday" folder with inking around the edges using Marigold distress ink. All the flowers have been embossed with the Swiss dots folder to give an added dimension ... well I think it does. The frame and beaded circle have also been embossed with the Swiss dots folder, with the beaded circle also being inked.

All the flowers, sentiment and papers are from the new Polka Doodles "Bonbon Belles" double CD and I have used the "Tropical" section. I am trying very hard to use colours I wouldn't always default to, so this CD is great for this and I have used orange as my feature colour.
