Embossing with the Winter Wonderland


Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Today sees the next challenge at the


Today's theme is being hosted by the very talented Sally, with the theme being

Embossing


We are sponsored this week by the amazing
Emerald Faerie Garden
now known as
A and T Designs
offering 3 digis of the winners choice 
from the original EFG images only this time

So here is what I created with the photo inspiration, but do not forget to hop on over to the challenge site to see the rest of the amazing inspirational pieces

The base layer is gold mirror card, with a white Swiss dots embossed top layer.  The image is from a House Mouse unmounted set from Joanna Sheen called "Sleigh Mice" Little and large pearls from the Hobby House. Lights are coloured in Atyou glitter pens, see Top Tip on these below.

Please don't forget the 
Design Team call 
currently in progress if you are interested you can hop here.

I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for their lovely comments which are always inspiring and allow me to hop back over to visit you in return

Challenges I would like to enter are

Simon Says Stamp - Clean and Simple
Truly Scrumptious -  Anything Goes
Whimsy Stamps - Anything Goes
A and T Challenge blog - Embossing wet/dry
Christmas Crafting - Twas the Night Before Xmas
Just Tracy's - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Clean and Simple

Top Tip
When using your Atyou Glitter pens, do not leave them tip up or tip down, as this will mean that the glitter will not flow correctly.  Lay them flat on their side and you will get so much more from them.

Hi Kate
Beautiful card. Love the embossing, it gives it very elegant feel. Beautiful image of house mice too. Looks like they had too much too drink and got up to mischief, they better do not electrocute themselves.
