Let's Squash it - take three!

 I'm back with a final entry for Let's Squash It.... Nature and watercolour

Many of you know I have heaps of embossing folders.... but I couldn't not get a new 3D one from Altenew - Decroative Florals and it arrived yesterday.  I LOVE my folders and use them lots. 

I took a piece of watercolour paper and my folder.  I used some Ultramarine ink from Altenew to swip and blend onto my folder, spritzed with some water and ran it through my trusty Cuttlebug.  I then spaltter it with some of the blue ink watered down and some bronze Nuvo drops diluted.  I used some bronze metallic card stock to die cut the Slim Sentiments die.  I cut it into two sentiments as it is a really long die cut.  

At long last I am almost well again.  Still a slight cough rattling around my chest but definatly better.  I had my hearing tested today and although there is some slight loss of hearing in the high frequency range it's still in the acceptable range.  Just need to check again in a year.   And I've got my appointment for my first COVID injection - 12th July.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope the week is going well for you.

So glad to hear that you are beginning to feel better, Dawn. Your card is lovely - I'm such a big fan of blue and your embossing folder choice is gorgeous. Thanks for playing again at Let's Squash It! Jo x

A pretty card with a fabulous sentiment Dawn.
So glad to hear you are well on the mend - like you I have some high frequency loss, but still 'acceptable'...
I have had both my vaccinations, with no reactions, thankfully.
Stay safe

Glad you are feeling better and also glad that I am not the only one who, despite having loads of folders, still finds must haves. Jo and I were discussing the other day that there seems to be an embossing folder come back with lots of new companies venturing into embossing folders and making some fabulous designs. Have you seen the Memory Box ones bwahahahaahaaaa. Love the blue and gold. Classic and elegant. Thanks for joining the fun at Let's Squash It! Hugz

Sorry I don't keep up on blogs very well, but am catching up tonight. Glad you finally are feeling better & that you can get the vaccine. So sad how many people who want it haven't had the chance & so many people here refuse to get it even though it's been available for many weeks! I love embossing folders, too & your card is so pretty!
