Die cuts, embossing and masks

Edit:  My apologies to those of you sponsoring challenges and to DT members who are commenting - this is probably too late, but something weird has happened to my description - when I checked now (Sunday p.m.), I realized that my original description has vanished.
Products:  SU Designer greetings, JustRite sentiment; chalk pencils, misc. dp and cs.   Items available at Joan's Gardens:  Cuttlebug frame embossing folder, Sizzix Garden Green die (I cut apart the leaves from the branch).  I used a somewhat different masking technique - I used a scroll punch, and sponged oer it with SU chalk - I also masked a circle for the sentiment.  The color is way off, as I used More Mustard chalk - to match the mat.  (The "to you" is from a Just Rite set that was probably the first JR one I bought - not sure of the name but it is a Classic Circle Stamper..  I masked the rest of the stamp to get the "to you" that I wanted here.)
