Rustic Car in the Woods

Hi Crafters:
I learned a new technique from Frenchie's video today called Woodland Embossing. I am calling my card - Rustic Car in the Woods.  I see where I need to perfect the technique  a bit - but I am happy with how this turned out - it is art - and now since I created this car behind these tree creation, my head is spinning to try other types of background stamping with embossing folders. Thanks for stopping by and hope you give this a try! Enjoy your day.  ~ Gail ~
