World Card Making Day

Hi everyone!

I know, it's probably not World Card Making Day for most of you anymore--but it's not even 9 p.m. where I live! ;) So, I was able to squeak in with a card before the day is done.

I wanted to play along with a challenge over at V's Sweet Ideas blog. This month, she is encouraging us to use a technique that I love--embossing!

So, without further ado, here's my card.
I knew that I wanted to use my embossing folder for this card. The idea had been in my mind for a week or so--perfect timing for the challenge! The stamp is from the Dollar Store--and I found it years ago! I can't tell you all how many times I've used it! The sentiment is from a sympathy set from Hero Arts. The sketch has clean lines--which I love--and I used an old sketch from a site that sponsors "Sweet Sunday Sketch" themes. When I saw the sketch in my sketch book, I knew it would work well with the idea I had been dreaming up.

Hope you guys can join in on the challenge--embossing really is a very fun technique!

Happy World Card Making Day! :)
