CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 16

*This is my second post for today. Please scroll down to see my DeNami Design Product Spotlight post.

Hello there! Just wanted to pop in really quickly and share a card I made for the most recent CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!

This time around the challenge is all about embossing! Here's what I came up with:

I've had this "Floral Screen" embossing folder for a LOOONNNGGG time, and I LOVE it---but I think this is the very first time I've ever used it! Here's a closer look:

I hope you like my creation!

Thanks for stopping by!

I don't know how you did it but that red bird is awesome! Love the way it pops against the brown and the textures of the embossing and woodgrain. Thanks too, for playing along at CAS-ual Fridays this week!
