Crafting for all Seasons #71 "Sentiment as Focus"

Good morning all.
Managed to tidy the craft room yesterday and found homes for loads of stuff lying around...now I'll forget I have it lol!! 

Today it's time for our next challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Sentiment as Focus". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Inky Impressions who gave the DT sentiments to work with.

I choose "Warm Winter Kisses"  which I heat embossed with silver EP after printing. Dies are from Spellbinders and embossing folder is the Die'sire "I Believe"  from Crafter's Companion. I've used a silver ink pad to highlight the embossing on both the background and the dies.
Love how this turned out and could be making several more in different colourways!

Flat for posting....

....and finished inside too!!

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the girls inspiration, you won't be disappointed.
