Challenge #217 - Embossing of any Kind" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well Im sure most of the children have gone back to School today or possibly next week and hopefully it wont be long before you will be able to spend a bit more time crafting without them wanting to join in. This weeks them over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot  is "Embossing of any Kind" and this means either wet embossing with the powders and heat gun, or using the folders to run through your machines, so it couldnt be any easier could it?
As always our sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.

And as always this comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card or project, but even if you havent used you will still be eligible for 3 digi images of your own choice, so you really cannot loose can you. You will find lots of Images, Papers and Printables on their website here "The Paper Shelter" and the money exchange is extremely good so you will find they very reasonable to buy, I hope you enjoy your browse on their website.
For my Image for this challenge I have used this sweet girl

This is called "Cool Student" and as a lot of the older children dont go onto College for another couple of weeks I thought it was appropriate for my older grandchildren who are due to start then. You will find her here, and I printed her as always onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, I then cut her out using a Nestabilitie Labels die and used a fancy one for the mount.
The sentiment was stamped and mounted of a tag die using the same backing card I used for the image.The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount of orange card, the backing paper is also from the same design set as the image and you will find it here. On top of this I used some of the orange card and ran it through a embossing folder and used a corner chopper to finish of the edges, this was then placed on top of the first mount and the image placed in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
I then created a flower with a Heartfelt die and stamp using a orange inkpad to distress it, this was then layered up and mounted in the top right hand corner, to finish of I used six orange pearls down the left hand side in the top and bottom corners.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Embossing of any Kind" Challenge.
