Embossing at DP2 and a Baby Christening Box

Hi there sweet peeps! Hope you're having a great week; we are having a new challenge  this week at Mo's Digital Pencil Too, and our extremely talented DT sister, Tracy has chosen


this time for us. I admit I rarely use embossing on my cards, I had to search for an hour my embossing plates, put somewhere "safe" as all the things I don't find. Now, you also have the choice of wet embossing, that's about using the heat gun, which I don't have; so those of you who use this technique please show us what you can make, with a Mo image on, of course!

A couple of months back I made a sort of baby Christening box for a boy, I thought then I should reiterate that because I liked the way it turned out. Someone asked me to make her something similar for a baby. Ok, I said, is that a boy or a girl? Just for a baby, she said because she just loved that one and would like to have one she could use in both cases. Well, I thought that was weird, but eventually I came up with this "neutral" purple (yes, I know it's rather girlie, but it's not pink, right?):):

I also made some quilled flowers, I think they are pretty and delicate and look beautifully on baby cards.

Card recipe:
Image; Mo Manning- Spit Happens
Backing paper: 300 gr printed cardstock, no DP; some paper made with stamps and embossed paper
Coloring medium: copics, promarkers
Flowers and embellishments: WOC flowers, quilled flowers, pearls and ribbon, Prima pins, feathers, wooden star from stash, clay bee
Misc: acetate

The baby pic can be inserted under the acetate. There are two sheets of acetate with the frame die cut between them. Here are some close-ups:

And the flower cluster:

That's it from me today, hope I've inspired you to male something similar:) With a baby pic in these look lovely!

This challenge is running for two weeks at Mo's Digital pencil Too; so plenty of time for you to join in! Also, please go take a look at the wonderful craetions of my DT sisters! I always look forward to see what they come up with every week!

And, don't forget, Mo is awarding a 5 dollar shopping spree  at her store here for one lucky winner in every 25 entries! Good luck to all and take care!
