My card for Unscripted Sketches No 185

My card for Unscripted Sketches No 185
 This was the sketch and the piggy back challenge was use embossing.  I have turned the sketch on its side
I have used the dearly embossing folder from the Sizzix "Dearly and Frost Set", Martha Stewart snowflake border punch, Papers from Basic Grey "Eskimo Kisses" paper pad and stamp from Kaisercraft "Be Merry Collection".


  1. Oh my goodness! This embossing folder is amazing...first time I have seen it and I'm really, REALLY thinking that I need it! Is there matching paper...I see the sweet wee guy in the top right corner of your card?

    The punched snowflake border look great with the green backing paper! Love it!

    I always look forward to seeing your Unscripted Sketches entries Margaret!
