CAS-ual Fridays - CFC 69 'Embossing'

Whilst 'playing' with my fave leaf stamps for the Less is More challenge this week, I made another leafy card using a new Darice embossing folder. This card is for a close friend who tragically lost her Mom recently. To be honest I find sympathy cards very difficult to send, (which I suppose is a little odd being a cardmaker); and 'ummed and aaahed' before making this one. A card seems such a futile gesture in such circumstances; anyway, here's the finished card which I'd like to enter in CAS-ual Friday's challenge this week which is 'embossing';

Card: Papermania Kraft card 7x5"
Embossing Folder: Darice 'Wood Grain' embossing folder
Stamps: Leaf stamp manufacturer unknown,
Craftwork Cards 'Springtime & Sentiments' 
Inks: DI 'Peeled Paint', Memento Dewdrop 'New Sprout'

Never an occasion we card makers want to have to address but you've made a beautiful card Caggy & your friend will appreciate it very much. Thank you so very much for your enthusiasm regarding my new stamp line - you have no idea how much your encouragement means to me....I'm hoping to get my web shop up & running in the next few weeks :) xxx
