Embossed Grapes

I made this card using a sketch at a challenge blog that I later realized that has rules that you can only use Stampin Up supplies in order to play along with them.  I think that just stinks so I won't even mention who they are.  

I made this card by embossing a brass stencil with the cuttlebug and then tearing around the edges of the embossed rectangle it made.  This is a great way to put your old brass stencils to use.  Emboss them with the embossing mat the same way you would spellbinders dies.  
 After embossing the grapes, I held the stencil over the embossed image and rubbed some green pastel chalk over it to highlight the grapes.  

 Here's the inside:
