Blogger Challenge, Week #13

This week our challenge was to use embossing of any kind. I have always seen others use the Cuttlebug emobossing folders with chalking or daubing ink over it and never could get mine to look good. This time it worked well enough that I was happy with it thanks to the tip of a fellow stamper who told me how to do it to look decent.

Stamp Sets: Simply Said, Doubleline Doodles
Cardstock and inks: Pretty in Pink, Old Olive and Pixie Pink, Craft White
Accessories: Cuttlebug emobossing folder, scallop punch, circle punches, white taffeta ribbon, stickles

Make sure to check out the other challengers work, listed on the right hand side bar.

Thanks for looking!
