KLSNS Challenge #38

Today Ceal was the host for the weekly challenge over at KLSNS and her challenge to us was to use Dry Embossing.  I think practically everyone has at least one embossing folder in their arsenal, so this is really an easy challenge to take part in!   

Here is my card:

Yes, it is a Christmas card (and I can promise you it won't be the last one I post this month either).   I used this adorable Lily and Milo image from Stampavie along with some Basic Grey papers.  I added stickles to the edges of the flowers and some pearls to the snowflake centers on the punched edge.  For my embossing, I embossed the image and then added stickles to the embossed dots around Lily and Milo to represent snow ~ I just couldn't capture it good in the picture, but it is really pretty and sparkly in real life. 

We would love to have you join in our challenge this week.  Stop on over at the KL Stamping N Scrappin blog for all the challenge details and to see the fantastic cards from the rest of the Design Team.
