SOS Challenge #42 - Embossing Challenge

It's time for another challenge over at Shopping our Stash Challenge Blog!  This week it's a technique challenge and one of my absolute favourite techniques:  EMBOSSING!  You can dry emboss (which I chose to do this week) or heat emboss, whichever you'd like.  We have Meljen's Designs sponsoring again this week so be sure to play along for your chance to pick up some super cute Meljen's images.  I used an older Meljen's Design image called:  Sunflower Buggies.  I've actually had this image which I coloured in ages ago with my copic markers but hadn't yet made it into a card.  I love the cute little bees and gorgeous sunflower!
I used my Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the background (with cardstock from my scrap pile) and also embossed a photo corner using a Spellbinders Floral Doily Accent die.  The gingham ribbon is a tiny piece leftover in my scrap pile and the sentiment was stamped directly above the image.  I even added a lonely yellow gemstone to the center of my photo corner.  It's funny, I rarely use the colour yellow but I think in the last few posts I've had two cards with this colour combo and I definitely love it!  This card totally makes me anxious for spring to arrive so all the flowers start to bloom :)

Be sure to check out the SOS Challenge Blog to see all the fabulous creations by the rest of the SOS crew!  I was even able to play along with a few challenges this week:
