Candy Wrapper Challenge

This week at Fairy Fun Fridays the challenge is use a candy wrapper.  Well I used gum wrappers, two different kinds one is the blue of the water in the background and the other is the embossed silver cobblestones.  To accomplish this look you can use aluminum foil wrapped and taped around a piece/s of cardstock.  Then run it through your embossing template of your choice.  You must have the cardstock attached to the foil or the foil will crumble and you will not get the desired effect.  In this case instead of aluminum foil I used gum wrappers.  This image is from Prairie Fairy Designs and is called The Lighthouse.

Other challenges I am entering are:
Delightful Sketches - metal mania - hopefully my gum wrappers qualify
One Stitch at a Time - embellish it - gum wrappers
Pear Tree Designs - free for all
Cards for Men - male birthday
Party Time - anything goes birthday
Stamp Insanity - live free and die cut - nesties label two
Lexi's Creations - birthdays
