Emboss It - Simon Says Stamp DT & Birdie Love - Whiff Of Joy Guest Designer

Hello lovely peeps,
Oh my goodness how time flies! Everyday feels the same at the moment and I can't believe another week has passed already since I was last here!
I seem to have suddenly found my mojo yaaaaaayyyyy. For the first time I am wishing we didn't move my craft room to the attic as trying to relax & craft while needing to be on hand and keep an eye on hubby is pretty difficult when he's down in the lounge. Hopefully I have found the solution! I've bought a nice big plastic easy to carry tub with handles and can pop the bits & pieces in to make a card and bring them downstairs & sit at my old desk in my little old craft room & be close enough to keep popping my head round the door to check on hubs. It's a bit of a palaver I know but hopefully it will work out just until hubs is fit & well again & can be trusted to be left unsupervised lol. I'd much rather trot up & down stairs & a loft ladder carrying my tub of stash than not be able to craft or hear hubs if he needs me.

On to today's card -
& this week our challenge is

My lovely teamies and I are featuring Embossing Folders on our creations this week, if you have any we would love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to enter our challenge :)
As I've said before I love WOW cards (white on white) especially when they are embossed. I always think WOW cards look so elegant so hopefully I have made mine look elegant too.
I have used a pearl pen around my oval die cut for a change. I'm not normally happy with how my pearls look using a pearl pen so have never used them on a card but as I discovered a couple when sorting through my stash I thought I'd give them another try.

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous

 I have used some of my old favourite WOJ stamps on this card, sweet Willow will always be a fond favourite of mine.

Willow - skin - E11, E000, E00, R12, hair - E27, E31, E50, dress - YR24, YR21, YR20, N3, N1.
