Dry or Wet Embossing Challenge

Crafty Cardmakers this week has an embossing challenge,   You can use a dry or heat technique on your project.  I decided to make a Christmas card since the season is quickly coming upon us.  

The snowflake background was embossed on a shimmer paper with a Cuttlebug embossing folder that I have had for many years.  The sentiment I love and is by Quiet Fire Designs.  The sentiment and the snowflake were embossed using a Platinum embossing powder. To complete the card I added a white and sliver ribbon.  

Hope you will join us this week in this challenge.  Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by the creations of the design team.
