Monday Challenge #91-Embossing

Hi everyone! Sorry it's been so long since I've been able to post. I've really missed sharing craft projects with all of you and looking at all of your creative posts. Life as been so busy!! Good news is my husband, Jim, will be home from working in Alaska soon, and that means lots of free time for crafting! I did make a project for this weeks challenge over at My Craft Spot's blog. I needed a thank you card for my wonderful sister-in-law, who puts on the best Easter brunch. Now, I have a beautiful card already to go.

I love the soft colors and the vintage feel. I created an egg shaped card using the egg from the Doodlecharms cartridge. The blue egg layer is from the same cartridge cut at 12.25". I cut the egg out of some Core'dinations cardstock. I embossed the egg using the Floral Fantasy embossing folder. I sanded the embossed pattern for a distressed look. 
I made a tag using My Craft Spot's *Tiny Tags* metal dies. The *You're Eggs-tra special* is from the *Happy Easter* stamp set by My Craft Spot. I added a ruffled edge of *Vintage Vanilla* crinkle ribbon to my card. Kimberly's ribbon is just beautiful,and adds so much to projects. I love using it!

I hope you get a chance to join in on this weeks challenge over at My Craft Spot. :) Have a great day!
