Embossed Hello Doily

Concord Crush really makes this white embossed Hello Doily pop.  I must admit that embossing is not my favorite thing to do because I am simply not good at it.  I would like to be good at it because it is a beautiful look.  Speaking of look, don't look to close at this picture cause I really am not good at this.  :-)
