Simon Says.........Emboss It!

wed-newchallenge-header

Hello!  It's Wednesday, so that means a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

Our theme this week is Embossing.  You can use an embossing folder, embossing powder, a stencil and embossing paste - it's your call!  Today I made a card using both wet and dry embossing.  

SSS July 23

I love this Penny Black Petal Party stamp set; it has both outline images and solid ones.  So I chose a solid flower and leaf and heat embossed them in aqua and leaf embossing powders, then cut them out, and centered the flowers with a Doodlebug Sprinkle.  My embossing folder is from Sizzix, one of a set of 2, both of which I love; this one's called Vines.  My sentiment is one of Simon's Handwritten Sentiments, framed in a bit of Audrey Blue cardstock, and I added a couple little aqua flower sequins.

Now it's your turn!  As usual there's a $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store up for grabs to the random winner of our challenge!

And, since these colors work so well for The Card Concept Challenge this week, I'm entering my card there.  I'd guess my card would be considered Clean & Layered.
