Fab'n'Funky Embossing DT card

Hello fellow bloggers. Well what on earth has happened to the weather?  It has been reasonably nice here but much colder. My poor Mam woke up to 4in of snow on Tuesday morning!

At Fab'n'Funky this week we are sponsored by the fab Stamp Fairy and Pink Cat Studio.   Emma has chosen the theme of...

Embossing  I did embossing with a fab Pringle type patterned folder that perfectly matches the shutters on my image.  I cannot master 'real' inked embossing so need to perfect that very soon.

I have used a fabulous digi image that I found via the Teddy Bo site - D'Arcies Diaries - oh my they are so fabulous I am sure I will be visiting again very soon to buy some more.

Anyhow, here is my wee card for this Challenge at Fab'n'Funky this week so do come along and join in and have some fun with us.....
 Isn't she just adorable - wonder what book she is reading there?...........
D'Arcy's Diaries digi image from here;
PMs ~ Blush, Dusky Pink, Spice, Coral, Pumpkin, Shale, Marsh Green, Moss, Pear Green, Pastel Beige  and Cool Grey 3;
DPs are from Melody Ross 12x12 pack;
Ribbon from stash.

    We had quite a bit of snow yesterday morning but it had melted by lunchtime. It's still bitterly cold though. Has the snow melted where you are? Looking forward to some warmer summer days.
