Challenge #17 - Grasshopper Green

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the 17th 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 8th of next month.   

So, Challenge #17
And this month's theme is

Use any Embossing Folder AND Use Green and Include an Insect

Use any embossing folder, lots of green and include an insect.  Please make sure you include both parts of the challenge on your card and also check da roolz to ensure your entry will be eligible for the random prize draw!

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

Hi, I'm a Dutch native living in Greece and I'm so happy to be making a guest appearance here! Thank you, Gail and Jo, for inviting me! I'm a hoarder of all things crafty, including embossing folders, so I'm really happy to have found this place where I'm encouraged to use my embossing folders more. I lean towards a clean and simple style, but also like to get inky sometimes. Fortunately, embossing folders work either way. I had fun creating this card and hope it will inspire you to get your embossing folders out and join in the fun!
