DS4J DT Midway Card-Inspiration for Embossing Challenge

Good morning everyone! 

I hope you are all well and having a great week, if not hugs to you all! 

Thank you so much for all of your comments and time on my blog.  Very much appreciated! 

So today is the midway inspiration for the DS4J Blog.  The challenge is to use embossing on your card dry or wet. 

You can enter your creations and projects here: DS4J Blog

This challenge is hosted by Pam:

This is Pam one of the DT at DS4J and today I have a fun challenge for you. Zing up your paper creation with embossing. Use either wet or dry embossing. If you want to go the extra mile use both :).  Our challenge date starts today - Wednesday 16th October 2013 and ends on Tuesday 29th October 2013. We would love to see what you do . We would prefer you to use our digi stamps from our shop of course ( you will have an extra edge when it comes time for drawing the winner)  but you can also use other stamps.  Do link up your projects in the linky below. 

I am excited ! Are you?

I really hope you take the time to enter as I'd love to see your gorgeous creations there. 

This is my DT card for the challenge.  I used the Glitter Girls Majestic embossing board to emboss gold metallic card and used this to put my image onto.

 The digi stamp I used from DS4J is called Margarita
       and the fence is also from DS4J which you can buy from here: DS4J Store

I used spellbinders die cuts for the side of the card and the sentiments , lace, white bows and the handmade dotted bows were from my crafty stash.  The DP card is from a set from HunkyDory I bought last year.. 

I hope you like my card today.  I will be round blogs later today to check on your stunning creations. 

Have a fabulous day
Sharon xx
