PSC #78 - Dry Embossing

We had so many amazing entries in our last challenge to make a feminine card. Remember to stop by on Friday to see if you're a winner. The new challenge at The Perfect Sentiment Challenge #78 is my favorite technique:

CREATE A CARD FOR THE OCCASION OF YOUR CHOICE AND INCLUDE SOME 
DRY EMBOSSING. DON'T FORGET TO INCLUDE YOUR SENTIMENT ON THE FRONT.

http://www.thepapershelter.com/

Our sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter who has an amazing prize of a $20 gift voucher for a lucky entrant.

I used one of their images called "Let's Go to Sleep." I started to use a quote about following your dreams, but when I attached this lovely girl to the white embossed hearts and saw how she was hugging the dog, I changed it to say "from my heart" with an older CTMH stamp I have.


The hearts were embossed with a folder from The Paper Studio. The yellow dp was embossed using a Sizzix "Swirly Vines and Hearts" folder. The two corners were embossed with a small Cuttlebug folder from the set "Formal Squares," cut in half diagonally, then sanded. I added the row of sparkles along the edges of the corner adornments and the sentiment circle.  I used this sketch from Just Us Girls:



I used a lot of Copic markers to color this lovely image:
E00, E02, E11, E13, E21, E30, E33, E34, E35, E43, E95
Y21, YR31, YR61
R01, R20, R21, RV14
BV00, BV02, B21
N0

I hope you'll join our challenge and show what you like to do with dry embossing.
