Just Us Girls Technique Challenge: Embossing

 
It's my turn to host over at the Just Us Girls challenge today!  I thought I would keep it simple for our technique this month and challenge you to use embossing on your card:  heat or dry embossing is fine.  I embossed the card base with my woodgrain folder.  I used one of my favorite tree images from PTI.  The stamped the leaves a couple of times by stamping off and then added a touch of glitter to give the card a wintery versus fall feel.  I am loving that fine glitter (thank you Jinny for showing it often on your blog...I am now on my second can of it!)
Please come play along at Just Us Girls so that we can check out your beautiful creations!
