LIM week 15-embossing

First of all I am sorry I didn't get round to many Limettes last week. I have been away on a training course, and was hoping to catch up last night, but with the Blogger problems, it never happened.
This week the challenge on Less is More is embossing but a one layer card. I have used another one of the lovely embossing folders my friend has kindly lent to me and an SU stamp using an Anna Griffin gold ink pad. then I chalked very lightly with a coppery/gold colour over the embossed area.
The good news for me is that I passed my first LEAN exam and am now accredited as a LEAN practitioner to level 1a. Only 1b and 1c to go!
