My Time To Craft 'Embossing' Challenge

Good morning everyone, if you are looking for the Crafty Calendar Challenge post you will find it below this one.

It's Saturday so that mean's it's time for a new challenge at My Time To Craft and we have gone really easy on you this week and chosen 'Embossing'. This can be either dry embossing or if you are feeling adventurous you can go for wet/heat embossing.

I have two cards for you today, the first I made as I couldn't resist the challenge over at Cameo Creations which is 'St Patrick's With Bling'. Now as some of you may know I got married on St Patrick's day 18 years ago this March 17th and I think I was very lucky to have done this and used that as my inspiration for the card.
I used various cuts from the Silhouette Cameo site and the 'Hearts' embossing folder from Craft Creations which is a little hard to see in the photo. 

Card Stock - Bazzill
Sentiment - Crafty Sentiments
Gems - Dovecraft

Challenges I would like to enter this into:-
Cameo Creations - St Patrick's With Bling
Southern Girls - Pennants or Banners
Cardz TV - Luck Of The Irish

My second card has been made for my eldest son's birthday on Monday, as you can probably tell he is mad on football and has always followed Tottenham Hotspurs.

I cut the football card die cut from the Cameo store and then traced the cockerel mascot myself using SCAL3. I am really pleased with how well it came out. I used the colours of the team for the elements. I embossed the base layer of the football with Cuttlebug's swiss dots.

Card Stock - Bazzill
Sentiment - Teddy Bo
Embossing - Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots'
Die Cut - Soccer Card - 'Snapdragon Snippets' & Banner - 'SCAL3'

Challenges I would like to enter this into:-
C.R.A.F.T - Embossing
Dutch Dare - For The Boys
Southern Girls - Banners or Pennants
Anything Goes - Make It Manly
Craft Room - For A Man

That's all from me, thanks for stopping by and please hop over to the challenge blog to see all the other lovely creations.
