Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Embossing

It's time for a new Oldie but a Goodie Challenge, and this fortnight the theme is:

'Embossing'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Rick St Dennis:

I love embossing with my Cuttlebug, and I've used three of mmy oldest folders on this card...'Swiss Dots', 'Snowflakes' and a stitched effect one from the 'Just My Type' border set...which I have had since I got my Cuttlebug, which I think was five years ago! The image is a James the Bear stamp ('Present Pile') by Lili of the Valley, which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The snowflakes were cut using Marianne Designs and Cuttlebug dies.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
