Goodbye October from Diecut Divas

Well its time to say farewell to October over at Diecut Divas, where is this year going I ask you. This month our fantastic sponsor was the Stamping Boutique and for my last project for this month I have still featured embossing on it. Here it is:
Diecut Divas, Stamping Boutique Flower Cart

Card Tip:
To achieve this effect all you need is any embossing folder and a diffuser. You replace your second plate with the diffuser when you are running it through your machine. The one I used had a oval cut out which means it embosses everywhere except where the cut out is.

Card Ingredients:
Card Stock: Quill pink card stock, Kaszazz Lemon A5 card base.
Stamps: The Stampers Boutique Flower Cart.
Ink: Distress ink spun sugar on the background.
               Tyres: C7+C5+C3
               Flowers: V04, RV04, B05,
               Cart: BG02+BG05+BG07, R37
               Umbrella: Y02+Y06+Y08,RV04
               Butterfly: RV66
Dies / Embossing Folder: Cottage Crafts thinking of you, Darice flower frenzy folder.
Other: Wink of Stella clear glitter pen, gloss accents on hearts, assorted gems in pink and purple.
