Feelin' Koi

I've received such lovely comments on my recent notelets box that I decided to make another as a gift, and also for the CES Embossing challenge. I promised myself that I wouldn't get distracted by challenges this week and focus instead on making gifts, but I guess this is a good compromise!

I want to take a moment to catch ya'll up on my awesome week... I won two incredible challenges (SPCC #100 & Tellen's Place), and am not only honored but overwhelmed by their generosity; the soccer goal digi I requested from Crafty Ann arrived, and it comes as a whole wonderful set (all proceeds go to charity); Jeannie at Polka Cabana mentioned me in her post for her gorgeous tent card (she used the .svg files I created for my tent cards, available here). And that's just a sampling!

Anyhoo, for this box I broke out the copper embossing powder from another delicious package of Stampin' Dymonz blog candy (oh! that's another highlight of the week!), and used it for this lovely Koi stamp from Stampin' Up. Before embossing, I colored it with Chinese Orange and added some highlights with a glitter pen.
