Sweet Stampin' - embossing

Happy Saturday :o)

I'm here with my DT card for Sweet Stampin', where our challenge is 'embossing'.


I bought this embossing folder from Craft Stash recently and hadn't had chance to play with it until now... there are loads of different designs using the same layout, and I think I might need a few more lol.  I embossed plain black card, then rubbed on some silver gilding wax (love this stuff!), embossed a piece of white card and cut and layered the curved piece from that.  The sentiment is a clear stamp from Digi Stamp Boutique HERE, the game controller is a stamp/ die from Clearly Besotted, the number dies are Crafter's Companion and the gold dome embellishments are Papermania.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Allsorts - be there or be square
Simon Says Wednesday - happy birthday
The Paper Girls - masculine birthday
Inspire.Create - masculine

Thanks for popping in, hope you're enjoying the weekend :o)
