CR8ing & Embossing!

Hi all!

TGIF! So glad this week is over! Being back in homeschooling mode has made the week seem eternal!

Today I wanted to share a card I made for 2 different challenges. One is a color challenge from the CR84FN site. The color combo for this week were actually the colors of my wedding. So I couldn't pass up the chance to play along! And the other challenge is an embossing challenge from A Blog Named Hero site. I LOVE embossing! And I had a new stamp that was just itching to get used.

Here are the challenge graphics and then my card.
First of all, I am in LOVE with the Lattice stamp from Hero Arts! It is LOVELY! When I saw the color challenge, I knew I had some soft lavendar-colored cardstock that I could use and I chose to stamp the lattice background on it and then emboss it. It looks so elegant! Love it! I then used some pattern paper from Teresa Collins to layer the sentiment panel. The sentiment is from Hero Arts also and I stamped that using distress ink. Then, I added some lavendar gems and some flowers and the card was done! Simple yet elegant...

Hope you guys can play along!

And have a fantastic weekend!
Pat
