Cuttlebug Be Inspired #19

-- Second post of the day....scroll down for the Belli Challenge post --

This week's Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge was to emboss acetate. I thought up a couple different ideas for this one, but settled on this card in order to really focus on the embossing. The only stamping is on the tag since the paper itself is so busy I didn't want to add to it. The acetate creates a window to the inside of the card.

Come visit us at Cuttlebug Challenges and play along this week. I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!!

Stamps: "Tag Lines" by Gina K. Designs
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: "Ambrosia" by Basic Grey, Basic Black, acetate
Accessories: Ribbon Tag Trio die by Spellbinders, More Mustard grosgrain ribbon, "Birds and Swirls" Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

I like the way you kept the embossing as the focal point and using the black behind it for hightlight. That BG paper too works well with it all!
