LLWWC#43 Embossing Challenge

Welcome to La-La Land's Weekly Wednesday challenge. This week's challenge hostess is the incomparable Maureen and she is asking us to feature either dry or heat embossing on our cards.

Maureen used the oh so adorable Beach Lala image on her card, which means Beach Lala is available this week at 20% off. Be sure to head over to the shop to take advantage of this special price.

Maureen said her inspiration for this challenge started with her CuttleBug embossing folders, so that is where I decided to start. I have always thought that the folder with all of the swirly patterns on it looked like clouds, so why not make some clouds with it. I didn't have a cloud die so I ended up drawing my own on cardstock and then cutting out a template to make the clouds appear uniform. Then I ran the clouds through the CuttleBug using the swirly pattern embossing folder. I'm sure there is a more official name other than "swirly pattern", but I bet you know which one I am referring to ;D I used a couple of round dies to create a sun and I anchored all of this with Summer Lucky. This image is super sweet and I had fun coloring him up!

What will you create for the challenge? Everyone is welcome to play, however, if you use a La-La Land image in your creation, then you could be eligible to win a $10 certificate good towards a purchase at the La-La Land shop.
