CAS-ual Fridays: Embossing (4th and last card) and Liebster award!

Here is my 4th and last card for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge!

CFC69: Create a CAS project using embossing.  
Dry, heat or a combination of the two, it's completely up to you!

Since I LOVE the way this card turned out...I have a lot of different photos! 

I kinda did a resist technique here. I stamped the leaves on strips of cardstock, embossed them, then rubbed green dye ink over the strips, and stamped leaves over the embossed leaves and green ink in a darker green ink. I hope that makes sense. 
I LOVE how this card turned out. Don't you just love it when you make a card and you are like...I LOVE this! I know I do. 

Now, I have some more things to share.

Next, thank you to Ardyth for nominating me for the Liebster award!
I am so thrilled!

And now...the 3rd and final thing in this loooong post.
On Sunday we went to a poultry show. Me and my sister showed some birds (I took 11, she took 4) and I clerked, which is helping the judge by writing down which bird won what so that the people in charge of the show can give the awards to the right people. 

Me clerking. The judge is in the backround.

Me clerking again. 

Me with my clerking book where I write stuff down.

Me with one of my ducks that won Champion Junior Waterfowl!

Sorry for the long post!

Jesus saves!

I love this card too and look forward to seeing the other 3! Congrats on the win with your duck - we were at our (almost) local fall fair last week, and my big-city kids were thrilled to hold a brand new chick and see some eggs hatching!

Congratulations on the Leibster award and the Poultry Award! It seems like you keep really busy. I really like your card, the whole design of it, and it is so neat to read when other people like their own cards, I think that is what makes this hobby fun!
