Bloggers Challenge - Embossing

It was so good to get back in the craft room yesterday.    If you have been following my blog, you know that I've been in Asia for 10 days and got back late Wednesday night.  Fortunately I did not need to go into the office Thursday so I got to catch up on some sleep, do some laundry, get some groceries and make a card!  Having come from Asia, I decided to do a slightly asian themed card and picked my bamboo stamp to do little inchy images for the embossed birthday card.






The paper is from Webster Pages combined with stampin up soft suede.   The ribbon is from papertrey ink and the sentiment is from the anniversary set from PTI inked up with versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Our blogger challenge from Lisa Somerville was to use embossing.  Lisa coordinates this challenge each week.  http://www.lisasomerville.com/

If you want to play along with Lisa's challenge, just create your 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.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.
