Fred She Said DT

Well it's back to school for the kids tomorrow and I am dreading it. I know most parents can't wait for their kids to go back to school but the girls school is quiet a distance away when you don't have a car (so is Liam's but he goes there himself so it doesn't make any odds to me lol) and I have to take them there in this blooming snow. I wish they didn't have to go to school when it's cold lol.
So today I am making the most of my last lazy day, well as lazy as it gets when you have to run around after 3 kids lol, and having a cardmaking day. Mainly so I can get all my DT stuff done but also so I can do some challenges because I haven't really been doing much challenges this last few months.
So my card this morning is a Fred She Said DT card and I also followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday so I'm entering it there.

I haven't used any designer paper on this one, shock horror lol. Instead I used a piece of dark purple shimmery cardstock and stamped all over with an Anna Griffin background stamp then heat embossed with Antique Sparkle embossing powder. This was so hard to get a pic of as the light kept bouncing off the embossing.
The lovely images is of course a Fred She Said. This is Emma with her frills on, isn't she just the sweetest?
You get 2 versions of Emma, with our without the posie of flowers and Tracey has also done some tiny flowers on their own too so you can have Emma holding a different posie.
The flowers I have used as embelishments are also FSS from the Pointy Petals Pack and I printed them on lilac cardstock then stamped and embossed them with the same stamp. There is just so much you can do with these digi flowers and they are much more cost effective than Primas or other store bought ones because you can print as much or as little as you want and in any colour you want.
I finsihed off with a few pearls from my stash and punched some corners with a Mcgill decorative corner punch then cut it out to give me 2 corners I could stick on.

Tracey has been working hard on new stuff and there is going to be some changes over at FSS, which I will tell you about as soon as I know all the details but for now, why don't you hop on over to the store and get yourself some Fred?

I may be back later with another card but if not, I will be back tomorrow with my DT card for Cute Daisy May.

Thanks for stopping by
