# 85 - Embossing

The challenge over at One Stitch at a Time is embossing and I've used dry embossing on my card. It's a UK Craft 8x8 square card blank and the navy blue and pale blue card is from Papermill. I've embossed the pale blue card with the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug folder and the navy blue card was embossed with the music folder but I'm not sure you can see that very well. The image is Birthday Boy by Stitchy and can be bought HERE. I've coloured him with Promarkers and cut it out with a Spellbinders grand nestability. I used a Sakura gelly roll pen to add the icing to the cake. I generated the sentiment on the computer and set it on another nestie with the scalloped backing. I backed the whole embossed panel with navy blue card and left a narrow panel on the left where I attached three strands of baker's twine from WOC.

We're being sponsored by Stitchybear and there are digis up for grabs so make sure you enter this challenge.
