Challenge #19 - Embossing

Thank you to everyone who joined in with last weeks special challenge, Joanne would have loved every one of them and i'm sure the person in need that received your card was very grateful.


Our challenge this week is :~ Embossing!!

This week's challenge is our lovely Lori's idea. We would like to see some form of embossing on your work. This can be heat or dry embossing, pre-embossed papers etc etc.

It's entirely your choice what you make - card, Lay out, atc, etc anything goes as long as it features at least one House Mouse or Friends image and follows this weeks theme.

We also have a prize up for grabs this week sponsored by............

Love the challenge! Embossing is my favorite technique....all the different forms of it! I just made a House Mouse ATC for a swap I'm in that has embossing on it, what a coincidence. I will be making something new for the challenge though. Love the DT cards. I'll be back to check everyone's creations and to post my own later. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
