Turquoise, Brown and Cream

Second card of the day!  I love Sundays like these!  I saw that the Penny Black and More Allsorts challenge blog were doing a bit of bingo playing this month and thought I would join in the fun.  This is their bingo grid below:-

I chose the top line and went with a cream, brown and turquoise card. 

I've had this embossing folder for a few months and kept thinking of ideas but never really got round to making them.  Well, finally I have today.  I think this folder is just beautiful.  I ran it through my Cuttlebug with Core'dinations cardstock and then lightly sanded it.  I love having texture on my cards.  The ribbon around the bottom was actually rescued from the packaging of a pair of pyjamas.  I stamped the greeting with turquoise ink and matt and layered in the same colours I used for the base card. 

Happy crafting
