Little Scrap Pieces DT Post - Emboss it!

Hi Everyone!
Wow, what a week! So glad the weekend is here and yay it's time for Little Scrap Pieces FUN FRIDAY! This weeks challenge is a fun one - It's being sponsored by our very sweet DT sister Lisa.
The challenge is to add some embossing on your project - any type heat or dry. Have fun with it and please pop over and see what the fabulous DT created.

I created an Anniversary pillow/Gift box for my Aunt and Uncle. Their Anniversary was on Valentine's Day so sweet. 
I chose to heat emboss, I love the effect and I think it can add a elegant touch.

The pillow box was cut from the Wrap it up Cartridge and using my Gypsy I hid the image so it would be a solid box.

I tried and TRIED to get a good picture but it was so hard :( 
Clear embossing powder
Paper - Recollections
Ribbon - Little Scrap Pieces
Burlap Jute
Decorative scissors
Challenges/Linky Parties
Stuck on u sketches - Die Cut Challenge ( I used the Wrap it up Cricut Cartridge to cut the box)
