H2H Challenge - Technique

So for my technique I chose embossing...

That is a technique right? I love to emboss - no matter what you are trying to do when embossing it always comes out perfectly - even when you mess up. I've found that the CTMH embossing powder works the best for me - and believe me, I've tried others...

I embossed the leaf and then tied twine around the image and some matching cardstock. I dry embossed the paper behind the leaf with my cuttlebug and punched the border. I stamped the sentiment on some cardstock and matted it with cocoa. Then I glued everything together.

Cardstock: CTMH (Juniper and Cocoa)
Patterned Paper: Costco paper pack
Stamps: CTMH (Flourished Blessings); PTI (Sentiment - First Fruits)
Ink: CTMH (Cocoa)
Embossing Powder: CTMH (Gold)
Other: Twine (PTI); Cuttlebug; Fiskars Border Punch
