Dandelion Wishes…

I am sneaking in under the wire to play along with Freshly Made Sketches this week! Embossing seems to be my thing this weekend.  I have been stamping over twenty years, but still remember the oohs and aahs from watching my first embossing demo. I still love watching the embossing powder melt into a shiny raised image.  If you have yet to try embossing, you are so missing out!  Here is a look at the great sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches, if you are going to play along, you need to hurry!  Entries close today! My card is heavily influenced by DT member, Linda Callahan.

I kept my card CAS for the color challenge at Less is More. Less is More is celebrating their 8th Birthday this month, so a Birthday card seemed fitting for the color challenge of navy and yellow.

My card is made with the new Dandelion Wishes stamp set from Close To My Heart. I so love the birthday font!  Here is a look at the complete set-

  4. I remember the first time I saw embossing – I thought it was like magic! The dandelion blowing in the wind is perfect for the sketch!

  5. This is terrific! I love the bold colour combination, and how perfectly placed all the elements are. Plus, I am a firm believer in heat embossing all things possible. 😀 Thanks for linking up with us at Seize the Birthday!
