Lin, you always do things 'just right'! In this case, that embossing folder goes so very well with the pretty flower image. You're all about the little details that make things terrific!

Thanks so much for playing with us at The Play Date Cafe. :)

I have butter bar ink too and I was wondering how you got the two yellow tones in your flower. It is really pretty and I'd love to try that on mine!
