DCRU Embossing Challenge

Hi Everyone,
I hope this finds you all doing well.  I love this Mo.  I have a picture of my Dad & Savannah singing Happy Birthday.  And Savannah looks just like puppy in Jingle Bells . I would have added it, but it's not stored on the laptop.

My Entry: Image Mo's Jingle Bells, White & Black cardstock, Red cardestock Stampin Up & BoBunny Sugar Dot item #125D550,Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Allegro,Ribbon Offray 907GG Swissdot Red 5,Robins Nets Dew Drops , Making Memories Ribbon Charm & Liquid  Applique.  I used Prismacolor Pencils & Stampin Up Scallop punch.

This project has way more embossing than what you can tell. Going with a easel card designe created a problem with the embossing folder I used.   Kept coming out upside down or backwards.  I added embossed blk. card stock.  That did not look right ,added embossed red cardstock.  Still did not like. Embossing did not show up on the on the blk/wht dot.  Added the wht. embossed.  So there are realy 5 layers of embossing.   But as it turned out, when you remove the card from it's emvelope you get a hint at what's inside when you open the card up.
So it all turned out in the end.  I hope everyone has a good rest of the week.

Thank You for considering my entry.
