Challenge #4 - Embossing (Dry or Heat)

Hi Pinkies

It's time for a new fun pink challenge at In The Pink......  this time we would like to see you use embossing on your creation....  either dry embossing, or with embossing powder!!  Hope we're not asking too much and that you'll all rise to the challenge!!  Take a look below at what we've come up with...

And now we'd like to introduce our fabuolous Guest Designer for the next two challenges.... Her name is Becky from Cards by Becky and her entries were beautiful in our first two challenges.  We were thrilled when she agreed to join us for a short time.  You'll find a little bit about this lovely lady below her gorgeous creations but you can also click on her name to find more details about the cards she has created for us:

"I live on the North East coast of England with my hubby and our two gorgeous kids. I work full time at the local Hospital, and with what spare time I have I make cards. I like how you can get lost when you're colouring, which is what I like best, but when a card comes together better than imagined, well that's one of the reasons why I make cards. The other, I like special, unique cards which can be treasured keepsakes."..........  Becky x

I think you'll agree we have all come up with some very different types of embossing on our cards, and also very different styles....  please do pop over to our own blogs to find more details.

Then.....  dig out your pink and get embossing!!  Remember - you could be joining us as our next Guest Designer!!

All we need to see is some kind of embossing on your entries....  either using an embossing folder, or manually embossing..... or for the brave, some embossing powders used with heat!!  The choice is yours.

Big hugs to all our fabulous Pinkies....  we look forward to seeing your creations!
Posh and Pretty (Christine and Sylvia!)
PS..... Hope you've checked to see if you were chosen as  Perfect Pinkie this time..  if not, the link is HERE
