I think you can pretty much tell everything I did here. It is difficult to see in the pic, but I used the Sizzix Paislies texture plate (with my Cuttlebug) on all the light blue paper. Hope you like it!

So the challenge at Cuttlebug Spot was to emboss twice. On this card I embossed cream cs with the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder; then inked over raised image with Shabby Shutters Distress ink. Then I took 3 (of the 4) small deco circle frame embossing folders and embossed over this paper; I inked these raised images with Broken China Distress Ink. Some of this ink also touched on the tiny bubbles and the inks mixed for a third color. I then used the SU scalloped cirlce punch to punch out all three of these images. I used Memory Boutique dp and corner flourish rub-ons. I inked the edges of the aqua cs with the Shabby Shutters Distress ink; Used Fiskars Effervesence border punch on the aqua cs and Cuttlebugged it with the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder as well. Added the ribbon accents and the sentiment.
