For Some One Special

Time for another great challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this week.  The theme of this challnge is embossing, either dry or wet embossing. 

I used a Crafter's Companion embossing folder for the card along with Distress Inks.  I love the strong impressions the folder makes on the card stock.  I layered the image with Tim Holtz's Metallic paper from his idea-ology collect. To complete the card I used a "For Someone Special" die cut along with a Pentart  rainbow glitter pen. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a great week crafting. Hope you will join us this week.
