Emboss it !

With today being Wednesday it is, of course, time to tell you about a new challenge over at MMCS Challenge blog.
This week we are asking to see your creations which include embossing - One of my fav techniques.
You can dry emboss or wet emboss whatever your little heart desires !

Our sponsor this week is Wild rose studio who is  offering one winner their choice of 2 stamps - you lucky things !

My kraft card was embossed with one of my sizzix texture plates and inked it up with some white ink - I love the look of white ink on kraft card - note to self: I really must invest in a brayer !

The DP is a scrap from drawer - yes I am still sticking to my new years resolution and using up my scraps - although I have been naughty and bought new papers too !
The sweet little stamp is a digi from ADFD coloured with my prisma's with a little gem added for his eye then die cut with my new spellbinders die labels 25 available at the MMCS store here and the sweet swirls were die cut with a joycraft die.
Sentiment is a HOTP clear stamp and that gorgeous trim is from websters pages.

Don't forget to hop over to the MMCS challenge blog and check out all the fabulous DT cards and get all the details of the challenge.

My card is also featured this week at the fabulous Linda's recipe swap over at catered crop where we are all sharing our love of all things that begin with "B" ! Mine is obviously birds !
