A Little Gossip...about Paper Playtimes New Challenge

Happy Day to all. It is the start of a brand new challenge over at Paper Playtime. This challenge is all about embossing: wet or dry. I decided to work with more than one embossing folder to create this card.
I was inspired by the new washi tapes I just got at Michael's to put this one together. I selected the papers to go with some of the tapes and cut the paper to get ready for embossing. I used two Cuttlebug folders (polka dots and one from the decorative tile set) and than placed them together on a base before layering the washi tape on top.
I created the same layers on the inside of this card as well. Next, I used a cutting file from Lisa Norris at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons to make two scallop circles.  I added this silly and fun stamp form the Pink By Design, Days Like This set. I even inked around the scallop edges to make them pop up a little more.
I finished up the card and got it ready to  mail off to a new friend in California.  I decided to add a little washi tape to the envelope as well just for fun. I hope you get to join us for this challenge. You have 2 weeks! Make sure to check out the rest of the Design Teams's inspiration.
