Bella Toile Grid

I love the sketch at Just Add Ink this week and decided to go bright with one of my favorite color combos from the Color Coach - Daffodil Delight; Calypso Coral and Baja Breeze.  I teamed these up with black and white to make this card:



I also used the embossing part of the Friday Mashup challenge.  I've just made a few graduation items for my Creative Crew projects on SCS and have no need for any more but this card did have a lot of embossing.

I really like the way this card came out - the black background really make the emboss-resist squares pop.  I left quite a wide white frame around the main image to make it stand out more.  The gorgeous Designer Builder Brads add a bit of glam to the card.


  1. Create a project for "Graduation".
  2. Create a project with "any kind of Embossing".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project with "Embossing for Graduation".



Thanks for looking.
