Elegant Embossing!

Hi everyone!
Wow, there were some fabulous cards (and layouts!) last week using Katharina's sketch. Thanks to all who took part! The winner of the Bella stamp from First Class Crafts is Kathy(so if you could please email me with your address - we'll get it sent off to you!)
We have another sponsored challenge this week!
Phyllis at Diamond Card Craft has kindly sent us this folding and embossing board!

It's a great prize and to enter for a chance to win, you just need to make your project with the 'Elegant Embossing' theme (wet or dry embossing!). Then leave a comment with a link to it! A winner will be picked at random and announced along with next weeks challenge!
And if you don't win, Phyllis is offering PTW participants 10% off their order and free P+P! Just enter PTW10 at the checkout! Good Luck!
Here are the DT's cards to inspire you!

I have found that even the thin laser stencils can be used to emboss.

This is a bit late but I have managed to finish off the card using both dry embossing and heat embossing.
