Embossing Challenge for Crafty Cardmakers

At Crafty Cardmakers this time I set the challenge and I choose embossing, it can be heat embossing with ink and powders or dry embossing either by machine or by hand.
For my project I used one of the Glitter Girls boards, Dress to Impress it's called if I remember correctly, all you have to do is emboss the shape onto your card, cut it out and fold the score lines. I used bits of mirri to create the catches and add some shine. The flowers are also embossed using one of the boards from Crafters Companion, no I don't know the name of it as there are so many. I really like the leaf shape on this board and can see it being used regularly along with the flowers. I added some sparkly gems to the centre of the flowers and that was it job done.

As always thanks for popping by, any comments you leave are greatly appreciated and I hope you will take part this time at Crafty Cardmakers.
