Dry Embossing at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you are well and getting through your week.  Not sure what the weather is going to be like today.  I am writing this before I go to work and it is really foggy outside.  Maybe the sun will come out to play and burn it off.  

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Dry Embossing

We have two great sponsors again this week:
Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges for full challenge details and to upload your super creations.

I was able to use an image from our sponsor Bugaboo and created this little gift bag.  I took a couple of my embossing folders and created some little squares out of coredinations which I sanded.  The Happy Birthday is another little embossing folder that I have.  I then mounted the squares onto a piece of mirror card and then onto the gift bag.  The image was coloured with promarkers and made a little tag for the gift bag.  The shopaholic sentiment is also from Bugaboo.  I added a paper flower I made and some pearls around the Happy Birthday.  
Really like the patchwork effect and really quick and easy to do.  Why not have a go and enter the challenge.  Looking forward to seeing your creations.  For more inspiration just pop by Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges as the design team have been busy.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Allsorts - Photo inspiration
One Crazy Stamper - Birthdays
Polka Doodles - Birthday girl
Totally Gorjuss - Anything goes with pearls
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
Artistic Inspirations - Bingo (pearls, digi, ribbon)
