Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - No Patterned Paper

It's Donna's turn to set the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge theme...and she has chosen:

'No Patterned Paper'

Eeek! Now, I'm addicted to pretty papers...but I do like to try the clean and simple look with plain embossed card every now and then. I used my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' and 'Victoria' folders for the embossing, and mounted 'Henry - Hugging Heart' (by Whiff of Joy) on some shapes cut using Nesties. The scalloped border was made using an EK Success punch, and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


Don't forget to check out the cards by the rest of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge design team.
