Bloggers Challenge - Embossing

Happy Friday!

I started a new job three weeks ago and I am finding it difficult to spend time stamping.  I got my new A Muse Studio Holiday items (to be released August 22nd) and I have not even opened the cases.  How sad is that!  I am not sure this weekend will be any better.  It is the weekend to celebrate with my in-laws for the July & August Birthday Babies!  We are celebrating 4 birthdays!

Anyway, I snuck away to spend some time in my scraproom and it was heaven (albeit a messy state of affairs).
This is my first time participating in Lisa Somerville's Bloggers Challenge and it was quite a timely accident that I stumbled into it.

I participate in the Technique Junkies monthly Just One Swap and I was struggling with coming up with a card that I was happy with. My first few attempts ended up in my recycling bin.

There are so many great techniques and the one I chose is Embossed Image from the Emboss or Die CD.

 If you want to play along with Lisa's challenge, just create a card with embossing.  You can link it in below or you can go to Lisa's site and add your link.  No time to create a card, check out what the other bloggers have been doing by hotlinking to the bloggers sites below.

Card details:  
Paper: A Muse Studio
Ink: A Muse Studio, Memento Tuxedo Black
Embellishments:  SU Embossing Folder, A Muse Studio Twinkle Stickers, A Muse Studio Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, A Muse Studio Vintage Labels Die
