Embossed Ellie

This card was inspired by Marion's beautiful card over at the Muse Challenge.  I was rooting through my stamps to find something that would maybe go with Marion's theme when I came across this old cutie from Wild Rose Studio - coloured with watercolour pencils.

I also loved Marion's idea of embossing in the BG of the image panel - I used a super old mini Ellison Design embossing folder.  I love the finished effect, I'll definitely be using this technique again :)

Muse challenge #122
Crafty Creations #291 - embossing
Creative Knockouts #93 - use your stash
Papertake Weekly - ohh so pretty
Crafty Catz #283 - clean and simple
Sister Act #110 - anything goes
Stamp Ink Paper #1 - getting to know you - I used my favourite CAS style, cute image and watercolouring :)

Lovely, soft colors, and that elephant is adorable! I like the fun font in your sentiment, too. Is that a stamp?
