My Gilli challenge card- let's emboss!

Last night I was partying hard with the Gilli ladies as we were celebrating Gilli's 1st birthday. Anary was giving away amazing goodies! If you missed it don't worry- there is still lots of birthday fun to be had! If you haven't commented on my Gilli house post click here to see it and leave a comment to win. Hop over to the DT blogs to comment on their Gilli homes to win as well. Lots of prizes to be had!

After the wild party and meeting a girl named Tina who gives me a run for my money at being naughty (Hi Tina!!) I needed to rest up and so Cozy Gilli came out with me to help make my challenge card. Anary sent us all on the DT some of the new Authentique papers from a few different lines- Thanks so much Anary! I used sheets from the Journey Line on my card today. After colouring Gilli with my copics and using my new fave hair colour combo (E25, 33, 50) I paper pieced her Snuggli and then ran it through my swiss dots cuttlebug folder. Sheila at SGD has her copics on sale right now at 25% off- time to stock up!  

As I am sketch challenged I used the CPS sketch to make my card and embossed my side panels as well. I actually also cut out Gilli using my rectangle Nestabilities but I didn't have much luck running it through a second time to emboss it. I always chop off part of the paper. Oh well. At least I was able to trim it down and save it. Otherwise I would have hid the mistake with some fancy flower and ribbon placement hee hee!

I am also entering my Gilli card over at the Twin Touch challenge blog. I want to try those markers!!!
