Inkspirations Challenge #54 - Boho Birthday

Hi all,

It has been so long since I made time to enter a challenge, and yesterday was a perfect day to set aside some time for the latest Inkspirations Colour Challenge.
Things have been very hectic this week with my son starting school... I am so glad yesterday was a holiday!

Here are the gorgeous colours Keesh chose for this week:

And here is my card:

I recently came across the 'Inlaid Embossing' or 'Inset Embossing' technique here (thanks, Lyssa!). I cased a Valentine's Day card I'd made earlier, changing the colours, punched images and sentiment to suit a birthday card. I love this simple technique - easy and effective!

Supplies (all Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Cardstock: Blushing Bride, Pear Pizazz, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Blushing Bride Patterns DSP
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: Big Shot, Square Lattice embossing folder, Scallop Trim border punch, Modern Label punch, Boho Blossoms punch, Little Leaves Sizzlit die, Word Window punch, Basic Pearls, corner rounder, dimensionals.

Hope you're having a great week,


  1. Cool card, the inlaid embossing looks great. You've used the colours very well :-)

  2. Stunning Genelle. Might have to have a go at this it looks fabulous. Angie xx

  3. I like the look of the pressed flowers with the texture! Very neat use of the colour combo!
