My DT card for One stitch at a time Challenge 85

Here is my DT card for our challenge over at One stitch at a time Our challenge this week is Embossing so why not hop over HERE and join in. We are sponsored this week by Stitchy Bear Stamps.

I started my choosing my coloured card, I thought this shade of blue went really well with the brown. I cut it to size to fit the base and and ran the blue card through my big shot in a Creative Expressions embossing folder called Flourish and then the brown with another Creative Expressions folder called Lattice and then stuck to the card. I then added a piece of gold card which has been embossed again with an embossing folder, this time by Papermania called Tasty trims to hide the join.

The beautiful image I got to use this week is called Brat and its by Beary Dust stamps and is available here in the shop I have used Copics to colour her. I then mat and layered onto the same colour card I used for the embossing and then added 3 gold circles on the top right hand side.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
