I made this card for this weeks I love Promarkers challenge, which is to follow the sketch and make your own backing papers. I find making my own backing papers from stamping, distressing or embossing quite a difficult task and rarely do it. However I felt brave last night and so stamped and heat embossed some white card with presents in silver and dots (freehand) in Cosmic Shimmer turquiose. I'm not very good at heat embossing- it usually turns out messy. I think I might need an anti-static bag.The image is from Pollycraft and i really adore their ducks! This is a new one and is great for both birthdays and Easter. This weeks Pollycraft challenge is to make a card with sparkle. I think I have done that here, with the shiny heat embossed backing paper and the glitter glue on the cake icing.
