HIMCR #50 - Embossing!

Happy Saturday!!  Can you believe we are only TWO weeks away from a whole year of challenges! 
The challenge this week, the 3rd week of the month, is Technique SATURDAY.  This month it is Embossing!  Actual get out the heat gun, embossing!  I haven't done this in forever, it seems and I really love this technique.  I can still remember my fascination the first time I tried it and it amazes me still!

You have until Friday, June 22nd to link up your creation (see linky below) to get entered into the monthly drawing this week.  When uploading to online galleries please use code HIMCR50.

Here's what I came up with:

I did some dry embossing too using my Cuttlebug and an embossing folder!

Card Base: SU  Always Artichoke 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:   SU Purely Pomegranate 4" X 5 1/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper:   Taken with Teal, white
Ink:  Taken with Teal
Stamps:  Stampin' UP Doodle This
Accessories:  Cuttlebug & Perfect Paisley embossing folder,  silver embossing powder, brads, tab punch, ticket corner punch

Now inspiration from the

You can see the HIMCR schedule of challenges and guidelines HERE!  Please be sure and follow the few easy guidelines so your creation will get entered into the monthly giveaway!!!

Just a few guidelines: 
1.  The current weekly challenge linky will be up until Friday night at midnight MST.  Be sure and link your creation back to the actual post and not just your blog home page.
2.  When posting your creation on your blog or online gallery please link it back to this challenge.  This helps me to spread the word and the FUN!
3.  Please create something new for the current challenge and NOT use something you've made previously.  However, you can combine a HIMCR challenge with other challenges. It is always fun to complete more than one challenge at a time!
4.  The winner of the monthly giveaway will be posted the 8th of the following month!
