Pink Gem #83 - Emboss It

If you are looking for the Paper Nest Dolls Blog Hop be sure to click HERE as you still have time to enter.
It's time for another challenge at A Gem of A Challenge and this week we want you to "Emboss It!"
You could use an embossing folder (like I did), a stylus and template or go hot and used embossing powder and a heat gun.

Auds Sentiments - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Lots of Layers (10 combined challenges max)
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Masculine and Ribbon
Sandys Crafty Creations - Embossed Background
Tuesday Throwdown - Embossing
The Crafting Cafe - Here Come The Boys (1 entry only)
Crafts 4 Eternity - For the Boys
Creative Craft Challenges - For the Fellas (2 entries only)
ABC Challenge - Masculine (10 combined challenges max, 3 entries only)
Kaboodle Doodles - For the Kids

Card Recipe:
Image - Andy with Guitar
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Happy Campers by We Are Memory Keepers
Sentiment - The Paper Studio
Embossing Folder - Tiny Stars by The Paper Studio
Corrugated Cardstock - Fancy Fants
Ribbon - Hobby Lobby

Andy with his guitar is such a sweet little guy, I colored two of him and popped up his head and guitar for a little more dimension. Also I added a little chalk ink to the embossing so that the stars stood out a little more on the patterned paper.
I hope you like him and we'd love to see you enter our "Emboss It" challenge at A Gem of A Challenge this week.
