Guest design card for Digi doodle shop's best. 'Embossing'

Good morning everyone. Hope the sun is shining and the day is great for you all where ever you are.  Well here I am on my second week as Guest designer for Digi doodle shop's best and I am having a blast!

The theme for this week is embossing so go on and get stuck in!

I have used a blue backing paper and embossed white card witha swirl folder and backed it with dark blue paper.


I have used the digi 'Ship' from their store. I have cut it out with the largest nesties lace square and coloured the image with pro markers.  I have then used ultra thick embossing powder to cover the whoe thingwhich gives it that lovely shiney effect.

The sentiment I printed on my computer, punched it out, inked it and added a few mini gems.

The charm and gems are from my stash.

Hope you like it. 
I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by.
