"Emboss It" at Sassy Cheryl's!

Looking for my newest Magnolia project? Please scroll down....

Hey there my sweet friends!! Thanks to the magic of the internet and Blogger, as you read this post, I am jetting to Las Vegas, Nevada!! Yep...it's true, last week I was in Arizona...this week, I'm heading back to the desert to bake in the sun and read my trashy novel while my sweet hubby attends a medical conference!!  Hehehe! I'm becoming quite the jet setter in my old age, aren't I?!!

So...without further rambling (which, in case you hadn't noticed, I have a tendency to do!), let's get to this week's fun challenge at Sassy Cheryl's!! Our theme this week is...

"Emboss It"

Sooooo... I decided to make a little "Christmas" card using an adorable Sassy Cheryl digi called "Going to see the Star." Ta-daaaaa...Clean and Simple? Getting closer, right?!

Here's my card "recipe"...

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Night of Navy, Bravo Burgundy (Stampin' Up)
Embossing folders: Cuttlebug
Sentiment & Ticket Die: Whimsy
Ribbon & Gold baubles: my stash
Gold filagree corners & Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Inside sentiment: (SU)
Swirl dies: Nestabilities
Snowflake punch: Martha Stewart
Copics & Prismacolor pencils
Liquid Applique
MS Coarse Glitter

I have to admit, I freaked out just a little when I realized that I hadn't used DPs on the front! Yikes!! But, no worries...I used DPs from Bo Bunny's Midnight Frost collection on the inside!! hehehe!

And...your fave "ahhhtsy fahhhhtsy" view...

And  now it's time to pop on over to Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog to check out all the fabulous "Embossed" creations by my very talented and always "sassy" DT sistahs!!  Then, we'd love for you to come join the fun! Just remember to follow this week's "Emboss It" theme. You don't even have to use a Sassy Cheryl image...tho we love when you do!! Oh, and...don't forget to link your finished project to this week's challenge...because one lucky participant (selected at random) will win a $5.00 digi credit to spend at Sassy Cheryl's Digis Online Store HERE!!

Thanks for visiting!! And...for your kind comments! Have a fantastic week! I'm off to try my luck at the penny slots! hehehe! Wish me luck!! Mwahhhhh!

Oh yes, Pat, you are definitely getting closer to CAS. If you lose all of the embellishment and the extra layering you would be closer still! But in my view, this lovely make looks perfect with it's pretty colourwork, lovely layering and just the right amount of embellishment just as it is! Viva Las Vegas, girlfriend! Hugs, Lesley

Beautiful Pat!! Love the blocked embossed DP. Such a darling image, you've colored it fabulously. Put a coin in the slot for me while you're there. Lol ~jeni :)

Debbie said...

Well, My honey bunny, this is so sweet, love your embossing, and I love this image, looks like I am going to break down and buy a few so that I can start to joining in on the fun.

Hope you are breaking the bank as we speak or just enjoyed your spa package.

Pat, I don't think you will ever master CAS but we would be disappointed if you did LOL. Love your white embossed squares which add a beautiful elegant touch but still a homey touch. The Gold corner and burgundy and blue flowers are perfect with the image...one of my favorite from last year
