Crafty Catz #232 ~ Embossing

Good morning, well this is the start to my 3 day weekend, unfortunately I'm back at work on Monday! lol but I do intend to get some crafting fitted in as I've just had a lovely order from Crafters Companion of 2 sets of the Spectrum Noir pencils so I really do NEED to have a play! But back to business and as it's Friday that means it's time for a wonderful new challenge with the Crafty Catz and this week it is the turn of our wonderful Christine to choose the theme and this week it's 'EMBOSSING'  wet or dry, so a nice easy one for you this week.  We have the wonderful  FITZTOWN sponsoring us this week 

PRIZE.....3 digis of their choice.

For my card I have used a Fitztown image 'Wild 8' and in photoshop I inverted the image to get the white on black and I printed it off quite large as I really did want the image to be the focal point.  I mounted the image on to some white cs and then mounted this onto a piece of embossed black cs, embossed using a sizzix texture plate 'weave' then I finished off with some black & white gingham ribbon and a little die cut ribbon slider with a stamped sentiment and one small white brad.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
OSAAT #213 ~ Keep it simple
Digi Makeover #141 ~ string/twine/ribbon
Creative Inspirations #266 ~ Birthdays
Crafty Creations #263  ~ Recipe use at least 2 of: flowers/die cut/ribbon/purple I used ribbon and die cut
