Last Gift to Share

I made this for one of the people I work for....it's all hand embossed and sanded metal on a wood 10" letter, using Ten Seconds Studios metal and embossing plates. It qualifies for one of the current challenges at Gingersnap Creations, GC 34, Spicy Supply Challenge -Sandpaper. The challenge for me was figuring out what to emboss next to each piece....but they all worked nicely next to each other. Guess I really need to make one for myself next, I'm thrilled with the outcome. hugz...
