Squirrely Challenge - Chalked Embossed & a few other Challenges met!

Here is another card for Nancy's Squirrely challenge using a technique junkies idea called chalked embossed. I made several different backgrounds at once and this is one that still needed a card for a home. I've added pink and brown as well as paper piercing (using the Stampin Up tool that Nancy gave me) to qualify for the Friday Mashup challenge as well. Since I used a butterfly embossing folder, I'm also linking to the Flutterby Challenge.

I've used all Club Scrap paper from the Dream In Color kit (my least favorite of all time) and I'm still not sure i like the color combo of red, pink and brown with the yellow I already had on the background, but i'm going with it!

Submitting for:
Friday Mashup #42 (red, pink & brown, & piercing)

You can also see some of the other squirrel girls take on the chalked embossed technique:
and of course, our fearless Squirrel Girl leader, Nancy


  1. I like the colors, at least on my screen! It actually makes me think of sherbet :-)
    Cool Folder you've got, and the corner pieces add that wextra pizazz.
