Embossed card......

Hello Tuesday ... it must be Tuesday, I heard the garbage trucks!

On Saturday I followed along on the Embossing Blog Hop sponsored by Georgiana at Carson's Creations. I learned some new techniques from all the lovely ladies and she offered a challenge for us all:

" How About a Challenge?
We thought it would be fun to offer a challenge to allow you to add an embossing technique to your next project and share with others.

Create a new project (a card, layout, altered art, etc.) using either dry or heat embossing (or both) and post here. Let us know if you used a technique you learned from this hop and which one.

Another winner will be selected from all the entries and will be announced next Saturday."

I decided to make my Mom's Mother's Day card.

I used 3 embossings for the front. First was the Quik Kutz scallop circle on the white card stock. Then I did the same on the blue rose paper, fussy cut out the center and embossed it with Sizzix dotted swiss. I used a Sizzix flower in teacup folder to emboss on white. This I weathered with blue ink, highlighting the image. Layered it all up, added lace I weaved with some blue fiber and added the "laugh" charm. 3 blue flower crystals on the top and Mother stamped with a My Pink Stamper stamp.

On the inside, I used 3 different sets of stamps. "I love you bunches" is from the set 'Lovey Puns Food' by "My Thoughts Exactly". The bouquet is from a set by Inkadinkado, and Happy Mother's Day is an old stamp from the stash.

A close up of the lace (I just won this in some candy!), and the charm tied with the fiber. The base is a deep navy card from Recollections.

Enjoy your day ... I am in my Scrap Cave!!... yea!!
