Babycakes meets embossing & challenges

Well, it was a lovely holiday I shared with my husband and children. My husband was on holidays for almost 4 weeks and I enjoyed every minute I could spend with him. The fun and happiness increased once our kids were finished school. Today, it is back to regular schedules and getting projects done!
I am entering this card as "distressed" on Cuttlebug Mania and as having used something new, on Heart 2 Heart challenge blogs.

I embossed Lagoon cardstock, and the small strip at the bottom is Whisper cardstock. The ribbon is Sunset and Buttercup cardstock. I stamped an image from, School Years, on the Buttercup with Chocolate ink. All of my cardstock has been distressed with Desert Sand ink.

I used some new Babycakes Complements Canvas shapes. I thought the canvas was nice and the shapes were all very cute. I just set them aside and never got around to using them, until now. The elephant and sentiment are both from the pack, however, I think the current offerings are no longer in canvas. I added wood circled and Sparkle embellishments, to complete this card.

All supplies are Close to My Heart, unless noted.
Cardstock: Lagoon; Whisper; Cocoa; Sunset; Buttercup; Colonial White
Ink: Desert Sand; Chocolate
Embellishments: Babycakes Complements Canvas shapes and Assortment; Sparkles
Other: Cuttlebug Damask Brocade Embossing folder
