Tuesday is Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Day--Ready Set Emboss!!!

My good friend, Peggy, is the hostess this week for the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge and chose a theme I often over look, Embossing.  Here is what I came up with using another of Sassy Cheryl's new Christmas images, Lucy Lou hanging Star, they are just too fun to pass up:

I thought about using several different embossing folders an then I remembered this beautiful Christmas tree and thought it would be so fun to have Lucy Lou swing on her star just above this beautiful tree. reminds me of my house when the kids were little LOL.

I colored Lucy Lou with copics and then fussy cut her out and mounted her on 3 layers of mounting squares to look like she could be swinging dangerously close to the beautifully decorated Christmas tree.
The Christmas Embossing folder is Sizzix and I airbrushed it with Atyou Glitter pens in Green and Gold.  I am sure you can't see the glitter in the photo but it is there and the shimmer is gorgeous.
The tree was mounted a layer of red riding hood cs and a red ribbon ties the  layers together. The cracked paint effect of the christmas tree dp is perfect for this little angel and her star to Wish you a Merry Christmas. I added some of my new favorite embellishment, the gold corners, which go so beautifully with the gold threads in the red Christmas ribbons.

Be sure to stop by the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge blog and see what the rest of the DT has to show you and play along, you can use any kind of embossing you want on our card.

Sassy Cheryl has been busy creating the most fun Sally, Polly and Noah images, you just have to stop by the Store and check them out.   After your shopping trip take a few minutes to play along with the challenge and you could win a 5 dollar Gift Certificate next week just by entering the challenge!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.

She does look like she is swinging to put the star on the tree top. Hope she doesn't knock the tree over.
