ABC Challenges - E is for....

Good Morning and a

 HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!!

We have a brand new challenge for you over at ABC challenges, we're at the letter E and the challenge is

E is for Embossing.

Heat or dry embossing, or both, whatever you like, as long as there is some form of embossing on your card.

We have not one but two amazing sponsors this time, 

and

Here is what I made.

 
I used the stamp Bella Sole Love Letters from Whimsy's Elisabeth Bell collection. You might also find this stamp at one of our sponsors -  Stamp and Create 
as they also carry Whimsy Stamps products.

The image was stamped using memento ink, onto neenah solar crest card stock. It's been colored using Faber Castell Polychromos and copic markers. 

I've embellished with some die cut keys using the die set "Lock and Key" from Whimsy Stamps.
For my embossing I used two cuttlebug embossing folders. Had them for ages, and I don't remember their names.


The border was done using Whimsy's double scallop square doily, I just cut one of the sides off to use as my border.

I  needed something on the top right corner, so I stamped a flourish from the set "Lavish Flourishes" by Whimsy stamps, and I used a postmark stamp from the set "Vintage Travel postage stamps". 


I am entering my card to the following challenges:
