I've been inspired by Dawn at Dawn's Stamping Thoughts again to do some shadow embossing using the Serene Silhouettes.  I've used the tree here because I haven't really used it that much yet.  I love how this card turned out - the ribbon is so lovely. The shadow is done with Versamark and white embossing powder and the help of the Stamp-a-ma Jig.  A touch of pearls and some Wink of Stella finishes off the card and gives it a lovely shine. I'm entering this card into the Global Design Project No 027 the theme is thanks.  You'll find the blog here 

Here's another example but with different colours and sentiments.
The wording is from Perfect Pairings. I think it pops more with the white embossing rather than the clear embossing. I'm entering this one into the SUO challenge blog who want some Spring cards.  We very nearly had Spring here in the UK at the beginning of the week - the sun was out and was even a little bit warm - lovely blue skies.  But now its back to its usual grey.  You'll find SUO challenge blog here 

Details of the stamps are all as before but I'll pop some info on the ribbon I used - I didn't even want to throw away the small bit I cut off.  How sad is that.

Just a little tip from me but I'm sure we all do it anyway.  When I'm layering cards I always feel guilty about all that card stock at the bottom layer which isn't going to be seen so I use my punches to cut out various shapes for later use.  That way I'm not wasting precious card.
