An Embossing Challenge

Welcome to another Stamps R Us challenge where we're asking you to add embossing to your cards. This week 's challenge is sponsored by Sketching Stamper Digi Stamps where you'll find some lovely and unique digi images for your card making. I'm using the poinsettia image, and I colored it with Copics. I used Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, and Early Espresso cardstock. I embossed a piece of dp with a sizzix ef, and then did the sentiment with a Spellbinders fancy label and a SNSS sentiment. I added some baker's twine in a criss-cross pattern and added some crystals to the center of the poinsettia and the sentiment panel.
This angle shows the crystals a little better than the other photo.
I hope you'll get those embossing folders out and come play along with us, because our sponsor is offering a generous prize to a randomly drawn winner.
You can find all the details here, along with the other gorgeous creations by my fellow DT members.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
