Lily Pad Embossing Challenge

With less than an hour to go I am entering this card into the current Lily Pad Challenge which is Embossing, in any form and it's sponsored by The Crafts Meow.  I went with dry embossing using the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder.

Paper: Cardstock (PTI); Patterned Paper (K & Co.)
Ink: Iris Hero Arts Chalk Ink; Vintage Photo DI
Stamps: PTI
Other: CB Swiss Dots embossing folder; Button (stash); Jute (Michaels); Corner Chomper

I love layering identical colours on top of each other and adding some dimensional dots!  I simply stamped one of the images from "Turning a New Leaf", cut it out and adhered it to the centre panel.  I then added a little button, some twine and gorgeous patterned paper (thank you Jacqueline), and there you have it!

Hoping you are having a great week so far, the long weekend is coming up!
