Water Color Trio - Curtain Call #39

I love GREEN....every color of green.  So this week's challenge really wasn't much of a challenge for me!  Look at these colors!  Great choice Stacey!

Being the frugal gal I am, the first place I go when starting a new card is my scrap file.  It isn't too large, because I am always using them.  Since I love green so much, the scraps were pretty slim.  In my neutral pile along with the Kraft/Crumb Cake was a piece of vellum.  That got me thinking about embossing the vellum.  I had done it before, with mixed results.  I wondered what it would look like with the new Square Tile Embossing Folder.  That's what this entire card is built around.

Now I have to mention.  I just got my Watercolor Trio.  I owe it all to Silke.  She has used this set so beautifully I just had to buy it!  After just one use, I am so glad I did!  It's wonderful!  The sentiments are so elegant and the bonus?  They all fit inside the large oval punch!  I didn't use it with this card, but I was curious and sure enough, they fit!

So, how about the rest of the Crew?  What will they create?
