A New Code Word at Addicted to CAS

Addicted to CAS are back, this being our first challenge for 2013, we hold these fortnightly. The word is
EMBOSSING -You can do either dry or heat embossing it is your choice. 
We are so pleased to be sponsored by

 with a wonderful prize for our winner of the challenge. Please pop over to the blog to see more details. 

For my CAS - Clean and simple card, I decided to use a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Owls are so cute and can be used for various occasions. I used an orange sheet of Core-dinations, once embossed I sanded  the  embossed area which gives it the lighter colour. I then mounted it onto a C6 card (approx 6 x 4") and tied a black ribbon across the top. The greeting is one of those lucky pick ups from a reduced box.  I am looking forward to visiting and commenting on your embossed cards over the next two weeks. Thanks to those who have visited me and for any comments left which are always appreciated. Welcome to my newest follower, it is always heart warming to see another face appear in my list of followers.
