DCM Challenge - Embossing

This week's challenge Was set by Lythan

Embossing.
Dry embossing with a light box or with a die cutting machine.
Using embossing powders or triple embossing.
Using pre-embossed papers.
Embossing with found items.
Just have fun playing!

And as I can't resist being a little (em)bossy - why not see if you can get more than one emboss technique on your card?

So... My card.....
On a plain white, hammered card as a base. I dry embossed (yep! I've got a Shapeboss that never sees the light of day too, until today that is!) a flower into the corner and a couple of swirly bits down the side, which I then distressed using a paper scratcher. I heat embossed a gold border down the right hand side and attached that to the left of the card. I had some left over felt blooms from my Bubbly Funk May Kit, so used the bright green and white polka dot flowers and layered them up with a big, red, spotty brad. Using some lovely green rik rak from my stash as a stem I added a couple of the green polka dot leaves. Just a simple greeting hand written on the bottom and some gems to finish!

There! That's my second weekly dare complete! (Is it Friday again yet, I'm enjoying these challenges?!)

I'm thinking peopel should be getting these shapeboss thingies out of the cupboard more often - the results I'm seeing for this dare are fab! Love the dry embossing here Rosie and the felt flower is really fresh and funky.
