Embossing Inspiration at PanPastel UK

Good morning folks, hope you're having a fab weekend. I've been a busy bee so far but I'm hoping to have a lazy day today. My project this morning is for PanPastel UK, its the second week of our 'Embossing' Challenge so you've still got another week to play along to be in with a chance of winning some gorgeous goodies from Premium Craft Brands.

I've made a little gift box using a template from a Dreamees Cd. I've used the gorgeous A4 leaves stencil to emboss the panels used to decorate the box and added colour with Light Gold, Rich Gold, Copper and Bronze PanPastels along with some of my favourite Bright Yellow Green Shade. The sentiment and butterfly stamps are from the Postcard A5 Stamp set

I've used black card as my base, it gives a gorgeous rich colour with the PanPastels. I've embossed the sentiment in gold ep and added some gold PanPastel around the torn edges. The butterfly was stamped in versamark and coloured with shades of the metallic PanPastels and cut out.

I've also used my metallic pans to colour the flowers and added some ribbon from my stash to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafting for all seasons: Shades of Autumn
Open Minded: autumn

Have a great day and thanks for popping by
