Clean and Simple at the Stamping Vacation

Hello Crafty Ones,

(Well, it looks like the Clean And Simple Challenge was posted early. So, I thought I would go ahead and post today. )
It is Clean and Simple time over at the Stamping Vacation Challenge Blog. The theme for this month is:

The use only one tool - an embossing folder.

An entry in this challenge will make you eligible for the monthly drawing of a $25 gift certificate. And, get this - you get to pick the store!! Wow!!

Here is my card using only an embossing folder.

The card base is made from Barely Banana Card stock (Stampin' Up). I ran a piece of Minty Green CS thru the Cuttlebug with an EMBOSSING FOLDER. This cute bird is a digi image from the Cardmad Fairy.

I printed out the digi and colored it with Copics. I cut it out and attached with dimensionals. Here is a close up. Isn't this a cute little bird!

Do It With Digis - Cardmad Fairys challenge: Back to Nature
