One Card for Three Challenges.


Good Morning!

I hope you are all having a great day so far. Mine has been relaxing and I got some time to do some stamping, so I thought I would try to accomplish as much as I can with the time that I had. So,this is my card for today's MMSC challenge, today's SCS color challenge to use Going Gray, Pretty in Pink and Sage Shadow. I was also intrigued by yesterday's SCS foil embossing technique. Put all that together and for me this is the result.
I started with a Going Gray base and added the layer of Sage with the white stitching around the border. The small white squares have flowers stamped from Basic Backgrounds in Pink; but it's hard to see them in the picture. The "Happy" letters are Thickers by American Crafts. So, that's all for me today. I hope you like it. Thanks for visiting me!

Hi StampinGHMom, I'm so glad you got a chance to relax and make a pretty card using foil embossing. That's a pretty cool technique! The card looks great with the faux stitching too! Thanks for taking some time to play with us. Good luck on the prize drawing, xox ~Jeni & MMSC DT
