PCW TAGS n' ATC Thursday

Good Morning!

It is My Paper Crafting World Tags n' ATC Thursday!  The challenge is Embossing!

I decided to do both wet & dry embossing.

The tag is dry embossed and the butterfly is wet embossed.  I used Paper Crafting World's Cutting File Butterfly & Tag and cut them out on my Cameo Silhouette.  If you saw my blog on Tuesday, you can see that the tag matches the card I made that day.

I made the tag first so that I could choose the papers and then color the butterfly to match the paper that I had already chosen (a trick I learned from my friend Larelyn).

I was able to color the butterfly with distress ink to match the colors that I used on the card.  The sentiment says "It is better to take a risk than miss a moment of magic".  Boy is that true!
