InspireINK July Blog Hop: Embossed Anniversary

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator

I am so excited to once again be taking part in the blog hop with the talented lot at InspireINK. July's theme is Embossed Anniversary. 

InspireINK July Blog Hop: Embossed Anniversary

I made a practice card using Very Vanilla and Copper Foil and Copper Embossing Powder, I quite liked how it turned out but decided to change it up for the Blog Hop.
