Peachy Keen Challenge 42

Good morning! Time for another Peachy Keen Challenge. This weeks challenge is to use embossing somewhere on your project. You may choose to do heat embossing, a cuttlebug folder, or hand embossing, whichever you prefer. I used heat and cuttlebug embossing. I stamped the image on patterned paper and solid cardstock and heat embossed the images with super fine gold embossing powder. I then cut out various parts from each image to put my angel together. I used a glossy ivory patterned cardstock for the cuttlebugged background, assembled the card, and added ribbon for the finishing touch. The card looks much better in real life. I hope you will find some time to play along. You will want to see what the rest of the team has cooked up for this challenge. Lots of Peachy Keen cuteness going on, of course! It would be difficult to be anything but cute with all the adorable stamps they have. Have fun!
