Great Friend

It's been a day of housework and helping hubs, and he helped me with reaching the high places. I haven't made a card for several days and I though I would make something for the Shopping Our Stash Weekly Challenge Blog   This week it's embossing; dry or heat, or both. I love embossing both dry and heat.  Texture is something I love to feel on cards.  I also need the heat embossing to try to keep myself within the lines... I am also entering this in the Card Design Handbook Challenge-Asymmetry at Moxie Fab.

Lately I seem to be drawn to gray.  So, this is a more muted card than I would usually put together, but I am happy with the end result, and my scrappin' bud to whom this is going will like it too.

I used Hero Arts stamps, Spectrum Noir markers, clear embossing powder, Brilliance ink, and JoAnn ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by.

Embossing is a must for me for colouring, definitely! Love this stamp - it's been on my wish list for ages :) Thanks so much for playing along with the embossing challenge at Shopping our Stash (and sorry for my belated comment!)
