The Creative Cottage Challenge 26...Embossing

Hey everyone...I had a great day out yesterday with the kids and even managed to find a new craft shop that had opened in the garden centre...I treated myself to a few bits including some white flower soft for my cwismas cards...had a scrummy tuna panini for lunch too!

The last fortnight has whizzed by and it's time for a new challenge over at The Creative Cottage...the theme has been chosen by the boss...Tracy...and she wants us to do some EMBOSSING on our cards...this gave me a good excuse to dig out my snowflake CB embossing folder which hasn't been used since last Christmas...shame on me!

I have missed quite a few creations, haven't I so I'm trying to catch up - gosh you're so good at coloring in shadows and blending. I'm still practicing to make that work well. This is a perfect image for it. I love your snowflake. The diagonal placement of the ribbon is great - works well with the placement of the layers - great idea! The embossed circle in the background is clever indeed - sort of like the moon eh? Wonderful papers - I love blue.
