Embossing at Fashionable Stamping challenges

Hi there, we've got a fab new challenge for you at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time my lovely teamie Avril has challenged us to use 'Embossing', either heat embossing or dry embossing. I've used a bit of both on my card but before I get to the deets don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and find out about the fabby prize up for grabs from our generous sponsor Marina from Cottage Crafts

For my DT card I've used a beautiful new stamp from  Chocolate Baroque's Madonna stamp sheet which has sadly just been retired . I've stamped the image with black archival ink on ivory pearl card and embossed with black detail EP. You can see the detail better in this pic

The bp  is from Prima Almanac collection, distressed with a craft knife and matted on black card with faux black pearls around the edge. I've mounted the image on one of my favourite spellbinders lattice dies designed by Sue Wilson, I really love these dies!
I've used some gorgeous delicate black lace with chalk white seam binding ribbon threaded through it. To finish off i've added some prima flowers and a fabby acrylic cabochon with a seam binding ruffle around the edge. I just love these cabochons, they were a real bargain from ebay :-)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Artistic Stampers: ribbon and lace
Craft your passion: die cuts/ punches
Crafts and Me: vintage
Crafts for Eternity : Something new
Crazy 4 Challenges: add black cardstock
Fussy and Fancy: punches/dies
Wags'n'Whiskers: anything goes

Its perfect crafting weather here at the minute, we don't seem to have had  a dry day for ages lol. I hope you're having a lovely weekend and get a some sunshine where you are. If you get chance do pop over and check out my teamies blogs, they are a such a lovely talented bunch of ladies and as always they've come up with some projects to knock your socks off!! 
Thanks for popping by
