Hauskaa Vappua! Toivottavasti voitte kaikki hyvin, ravistakaa sokerit rinnuksilta - uutta haastetta pukkaa!
Nyt päästiin minun lempiaiheeseen eli embossaamaan Craft-Room haasteessa.
 Happy May Day! Hope you all feel fine this morning, maybe one sparkling more...Ok! It's time for new challenge at Craft-Room Challenge. Our fabulous Dt Esther has chosen the theme Emboss it! It's one of my favourite techniques, both cold and warm embossing, I do it a lot.

Fake metal embossing; Cuttlebug's  paisley folder (VersaMark Dazzle; VersaColor bronze, gold, clear ep).
Background's golden bronze paper from Papermania Textured Color Cardstock, embossed in Cuttlebug's dots folder, sanded; white cardstock layers, distressing.
