Phindy's Place~ Embossed


I just love these piggies of Phindy's and today I got to use one of them. 
The challenge this week at Phindy's Place is:
Embossing (dry or heat embossed)
I used two different embossing folders from Cuttlebug and then roughed up the paper with and emery board to show the white at the center of the cardstock.
The paper is DCWV and the coloring Prismacolros.


A close up of the shweet wittle piggy :-)


And an even closer close up so you can see the glitter on her skirt.

I can't wait to see everyone's projects this week. Remember , if you use a Phindy image you can enter twice into the challenge with two chances to win instead of one; but as always, there's no obligation. Just have fun!
See you around Blogland!

Hi, love your card! Did you use Stickles for the glitter? If so, how come yours didn't make your printer ink run? I find I can't use stickles with digital images.
