Squigglefly Challenge #28 SFC2813 Emboss Me

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone! Some exciting news, did you know we had a blog hop last week?  we did! It was on Friday.  If you missed it, just scroll down and check it out.  It used wonderful Shy Bear images and by leaving comments on all the blogs, you could win three images from Squigglefly.  The winner for that will be announced next Monday right here during the challenge!!
So, are you ready for this week's challenge? Well, first let me tell you last week's winner.  We had a great challenge last week to create a Thank You card.   We had a beautiful card submitted by Lawren using Retro Tulips from Squigglefly artist Jan Beljo. Congrats!
Please contact Holly at for your prize.
This week's challenge is SFC2813 Emboss Me!

Add something embossed to your card, it can be any of the wonderful backgrounds that create embossing, any of the spellbinders die cuts that have embossing, any brass stencils that use dry embossing, or add a great embellishment or cardstock that already comes embossed.
Let's start with some inspiration from the Holley Hobbyists:

Pat Martin crafted this cute little boy theme card with an adorable image from Cheryl Alger.  I love the swirl embossing, which she sanded down to show texture and color.  The cute image is called "Its a Jump Rope Kind of Day Max."

 Jan Marshall  created this beautiful card covered in embossed hearts.  The flowers are a gorgeous new image just released from artist Diana Garrison called Cone Flowers.  She added a perfect Thinking of You sentiment to go with it. 

Elizabeth Hart designed a lovely card using a beautiful frame from artist Pamela Lehto called Lattice Frame.  Inside the frame, she added a gorgeous image from Alecia Blake called Beach Birthday Girl. She used a wonderful embossing pattern that makes me think of little bubbles on the ocean.

Charlene Mitchell used an stunning image Birds and Ladybugs from Cheryl Alger to create this beautiful card.  This fun image set comes with three different adorable scenes for only $3.00!  I love the embossed backgound she used.  The sentiment is "a Big Little Hello" which is by none other than Charlene herself!!
Darlene Pavlick created a wonderful summer theme card using a lovely stamp from Fawn Palmer.  This image is called Just Flying By  and it comes with the adorable teddy bear as well as the sentiment shown plus two additional sentiments for only $3!

Tammy Hair created a stunning card using a brand new image from Fawn Palmer called Beautiful Mermaid.  Isn't her card just stunning?  It comes with the wonderful sentiment shown plus two additional sentiments for only $3.  Gorgeous, Tammy!

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image from artist Cheryl Alger called Max and his Ladybug.  Isn't he great?  I added a light blue embossed background and a trail of ladybugs.  The sentiment I am using is from Squigglefly artist  Charlene Mitchell and is called A Big Little Hello.
I hope these cards have inspired you to make a card to play along this week.  You are always welcome to play no matter what images you use, but to be eligible for the prize, please use at least one stamp from Squigglefly!
