Challenge #7 - Use At Least Three Folders and Include a Person

 Welcome, welcome, welcome to the seventh challenge here at 

Let's Squash It! 

Let's Squash It! is The Embossing Folder Challenge.  We are gonna help you explore the world of the not so humble embossing folder and encourage you to dig 'em out, knock the dust off and find old, new and fun ways to make your projects pop. 

We have an awesome team to keep you entertained and awesome challenge themes to stretch your creativity and get you using all those long forgotten and neglected embossing folders. 
For those of you who are just tuning in you can check the previous posts for the story behind the genesis of the challenge and the technique posts for awesome tips and techniques to help you make the most of your supplies and folders.

Challenges start on the 10th of the month and run to the last day at 23.59 GMT.  We will be picking top picks and a winner, who will have a chance to be our guest designer for a future challenge.  There is a little prize on offer for a randomly selected winner, and these will all be announced on the 5th of next month.   

So, Challenge #7
And this month's theme is

Use at least 3 Embossing Folders AND Include a Person

We are very pleased to have our Let's Squash It!! Empress joining us as our guest designer this month.  Please welcome Sally.

"Hi my name is Sally and I am so thrilled to be joining Gail and Jo as the Guest Designer for the Let’s Squash It! April challenge. I live near the beautiful Jurassic Coast in Dorset, England and I have been a keen crafter and maker for as long as I can remember. I soon realised that my real passion is card making and I then started my blog Sally’s Cards back in 2009, finding it was the perfect way to virtually meet like minded people. I have a huge collection of embossing folders that were gathering dust and this challenge blog has made me rediscover my love for using them."

Ooo, tricky - this one will take some thought! Fun samples from you all, such great contrasts of style with the same recipe!

I'll have to play around with my embossing folders a bit to do this one, which is the whole point of the challenge, right? I've got a lot of folders, but rarely combine them, so this will be fun.

Sometimes an idea comes to you when you’re trying to get to sleep and just won’t go away unless you make the card! So here I am, having another go at this one.
