An embossed Hi

Monday, August 10, 2015

I'm sorry for the slow last few weeks on my blog. Health issues are keeping me down and I just can't seem to make it to my craft room. This card is one I made about a month ago. 

I've been wanting to play with this gorgeous background stamp from IO for some time now. I started by embossing it in white. I then took several colors of Distress Inks and inked my background. The die cut sentiment is from MFT and some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finish off the card. I should also mention that the entire card panel is popped up on fun foam.

Thanks for stopping by today friends. Have a most wonderful day!
