Embossing, Heat or Dry, take your pick!!

Hi everyone, I wish you a happy Saturday and a great weekend altogether. 

This week, I am the hostess for the challenge at Kraftin' Kimmies' and I would like you to use either heat embossing or dry embossing on your creations.  I love to heat emboss, but for this card I did some dry embossing.  I used the lovely Takara and her little dragon for my image.  I used some Basic Grey Ambrosia patterned papers.  I love the grey and oranges together.  As you can see, I embossed the 'sun' circle.  I used 'Musical Flourish' embossing folder.  My cardstock colours are Basic Grey and Tangerine Tango.  I also used some Basic Grey Taffeta ribbon.

So if you join in this week's challenge, which I hope you do, the stamp you will have a chance to win is Takara.  The challenge is open till next Friday, so you have a week to join in.  Be sure to link up your cards to Kraftin' Kimmies' Challenge Blog.

Also, just a reminder that Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is doing the Frugal Friday thing again and the stamps this week, all of which are 40-50% off, are Mr. Punkinhead, Rudy the Reindeer, Billy Blyth (the pirate), Speedy the Turtle, Roxy and You Are A Treat.

Happy Stamping,
