Crafty Cardmakers DT - Challenge #46 - Embossing

This week at Crafty Cardmakers our challenge is being hosted by Tracy :) She would like to see EMBOSSING on your project. It can be heat embossing with your inks and embossing powders or dry embossing either by hand or using a machine so there is lots of scope for this challenge.

We have a lovely prize from Joanna Sheen for this challenge - a £10 voucher to spend in her online shop which is packed full of goodies! Why not hop on over and join us at Crafty Cardmakers.

For the embossing part of my card I have used a cuttlebug embossing folder on purple pearl card and also Cor'dinations Whitewash (which I have had for AGES and never really felt the need to use lol) card and then sanded it to reveal the purple underneath. My image is a stamp from LOTV coloured with ProMarkers.The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.The backing paper covering the card base is actually music notes from "the wedding march" but it's totally wasted because you can't see it lol

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Pear Tree Designs - Stamped Image
Kaboodle Doodle - Tictactoe (chose 3 items/techniques in a row, I chose embossing,die-cuts and flowers)
The Ribbon Girl Challenge - Pinks and Lilacs
Stamp Something - Anything Goes
Dream Valley Challenges - Dig out the old to use with the new (I have used my old whitewash card and backing paper with my new LOTV stamp)
One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes
Pennys Paper Crafty Challenge - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - May Flowers
