Pals Paper Arts #86 - Embossing - Meet Me at the Cafe - The Play Date Cafe Colour Challenge #74

Hi all,
Today's post is for the Pals Paper Arts challenge to do embossing on your card.  I have embossed just about everything, the card base, flower pots and the leaves with embossing folders and the flowers I hand embossed to give them some shape.
I used the pretty colours from the Play Date Cafe challenge and the image for inspiration.  Love my finished card, it came together step by step as I put the card together, it was going in a totally different direction when I started. I embossed the main image and paper pieced the ladies dresses and coloured the rest of the image with my markers. 
This card was awarded the Cream in Our Coffee award from the Play Date Cafe.
