Embossing is this weeks House Mouse challenge. This card has fought back all the way. I had a tidy up before Christmas, so of course I couldn't find anything today - not even my acrylic blocks - a brilliant start I must say !!! I decided I wanted to do a' pretty' card, so out came the lace which ended up covering up the embossed card I mounted it on - you can just about see it if you zoom in. I also embossed the base card with clear embossing powder and heat embossed it with plum pearlized powder, which hardly showed when I photographed it. I had to use flash which leaves the card looking a little washed out, but at least the embossing shows up. The image is coloured with a mixture of pastels and watercolours. I used the cuttlebug vintage corners, the Leone Em leaf punch and SU flowers and sentiment holder (or whatever you call them). The CS is Bazzill and Paper Adventure's Dazzle Purple-Pink Stripe.
