Bloggers Challenge-Embossing

  For the Bloggers Challenge this week, list Mom LISA challenged us to Embossing.  Here is what I created:
  This is for all of my Bloggers Challenge acquaintances.....!  I found this fabulous image and sentiment at Create with TLC digi's and had to have them!  I made the background with a Technique Junkies technique called Texture Plate Smoosh using Mustard, Pumpkin and Ruby Red inks.  I only have one more sheet of Ruby Red cardstock.....: (  which is sad- I love Ruby Red!   I also did the 'Out of the box' technique with her hat.
  I water colored the image and added a touch of Copic highlights for the skin and handbag. I dragged the edge of the image and the sentiment in the Versamark pad, and then gold embossing powder.
 So your majesty, what are you going to do today???  I am at work!
  Challenges are listed at the bottom of this post.
