Swap card for Ally

Hello Blogging friends . Welcome to my room . These days it is taking me longer to create , photograph and post,  but that's ok,  just as long as I DO!   And I'm sorry I don't get to comment  on your blog as much as I should , even though I do visit as  many of you as often as I can .
I would like to share , with you, a swap card which is WELL OVERDUE! Sorry Ally.
.......dry embossing , with just two layers one 3D
Not sure that the  3D sentiment is classed as a layer but this is what I came up with .

The card base is Rose Red and the embossed layer is So Safron. The embossing folder is Elegant Bouquet SU / Sizzix. The sentiment, from Every Day Messages ,  in Rose Red, has been punched out with SU Curly Label Extra Large . I added colour to centre of flowers  with a marker and a self adhesive pearl.

Using a Sizzix Trading Card diecut for two layers as insert , with a little embossing in one corner .
Hope Ally thinks it suits our  swap and hope you like it too.
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne
