Papertake Weekly

Hi girls. Another week gone by and Christmas is beginning to loom on the horizon. Thanks for finding the time to call in on my blog. I hope you find your visit worthwhile.
I'm trying something a bit different today. When Sarah was up on holiday I borrowed this stamp from her and heat embossed the image with turquoise embossing powder. I am afraid I've lost the details of the stamp name and the maker but the theme is children paying in the garden. I really think this is a pretty image. The background and mounting card are bazzil linen. The flowers and crystals are from Wild Orchid. The ribbon is actually seam binding fom my stash and the leaves are punched out. I have stickled and glittered the flowers but as usual it doesn't show too well on the photograph. 
I am entering this card into the Papertake Weekly Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes with the added option of something punched.
I hope you like this and as always any comments you might leave for me will be appreciated. As you start the new week I hope you have a great time at whatever you do and that you enjoy your crafting and blogging. Above all stay safe and healthy.
