Happy Yay !!

     Hello everyone, it's time for our monthly technique challenge at

This month we are embracing embossing
both wet and dry.   
If this is something new for you, just head on over to the blog
for a link to a wonderful tutorial so you can give it a try with us.

For my design team addition to the fun:
 I started with kraft card stock and used a YAY script die from My Favorite Things and cut that on an angle.  I then ran it through my machine with a wood grain embossing folder.  I then sponged some Vintage Photo distress ink over it to bring out the grain.
With a piece of white scrap I blended Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass and Shaded lilac (seems to be my favorite combo for the past few).  I tucked that under the die cut and saved a piece for the tag which is also a stamp set from My Favorite Things.  I used Vintage Photo again on the sentiment and then some clear embossing powder to give it some definition.   I attached the whole piece to a kraft top fold base with dimension tape and then added clear Nuvo drops to the banner and top corner.

I hope you play along for the fun ...

I would like to add this card to the following challenges if I may pretty please:
