It's all about the...

...sentiment and the embossing.

The challenge over at Virginia's View is All things Embossed. I love embossing in all its forms, with paste and stencils, dry embossing with folders or texture plates, and heat embossing.  I fell in love with card-making the first time I saw that powder melt - it was MAGIC, and I was hooked. 

I am also entering this card to Seize the birthday with toppings - Make the sentiment the focal point

Water color paper, vellum, cardstock, distress inks in Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, and Dried Marigold,  delicata ink in Golden Glitz, and some Hero Arts gold embossing powder were my supplies for this card.






I dropped color on to the water color paper and let it dry. I really spent little time on this. The colors were just a beautiful yummy sherbert collection, and I thought they would look good with a bold gold embossed sentiment.


            

Thanks for stopping by!
