Paperplay - Embossing

Supplies:  Meljen's Designs digital image - "Kitty Cat Love", Black and Kraft cardstock, 
Papermania red textured cardstock, machine stitching, SRM Sentiment sticker, 
Papermania sheer ribbon, Quickutz cookie cutter circle dies, Big Shot, 
Tim Holtz embossing folder and machine stitching.

Have to start off this post by wishing everyone a very Happy St. Patrick's Day.  It is a holiday here in Ireland today so everyone gets to celebrate.  Hopefully going to the parade later today.

Paperplay Challenge time again - this week the Challenge is to use embossing on your card/project.  It can be dry embossing or heat embossing - the choice is yours.
 
I had fun with this cute "Kitty Cat Love" digital image from our sponsor - Meljen's Designs.  I printed and cut out the image using a circle die, then used a kraft knife to cut out around the cat tails and add to the top of the red brick wall! (dry embossing using one of Tim Holtz embossing folders).

Added stitching, an SRM sticker, some ribbon and hey presto.... my card.  I think this is an ideal Anniversary Card.    Be sure to check out all the other DT creations here.

Thanks so much for peeking and I hope you get a chance to play along this week with Paperplay.
