Embossing and a CASE at 4 Crafty Chicks!

Good morning Friends! Today starts are new challenge at  4 Crafty Chicks.  This week our hostess is the super talented and crafty Lori!  Lori has issued a challenge to us to use Embossing.  Since I love all of her beautiful embossed cards I have decided to CASE her this week!  I know my card is not near as clean and classy as her creations but I just had to give it a go.  I have used a Gus image from Bugaboo called Gus Birthday Recount.  My husband just had a birthday and this was his card.  I colored Gus with my Spectrum Noir Pens and did a simple rectangle cut.  The embossed piece is card stock cut at a diagnol and embossed using a Cuttlebug folder. The other peice is cut the same as the red only I did not emboss it.  The sentiment came with the image and then I added some flat pearls for a little bit of pop. Some bakers twine from my stash finished it off.  

Here is a close up of this great image:
And...Here is the card I CASED from Lori:

How did I do?  Am I even close???  I love Lori's use of color here and the green and blue is one of my favorite combos! I have just got to get me that embossing folder!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you again soon!
