Another Challenge Card

I think I told you about the challenge that my wonderful breakfast group of demo gals set for each other (see HERE). This was the other card I made for that challenge.  I fell in love with the Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp in the mini catalog.  I had a vision of stamping it in Versa Mark on glossy cardstock (retired) and embossing it with gold.  I recently purchased some of the new style foam brayers from Stampin" Up! and thought this would be the perfect time to try it out. So I did ... and this is the result:

I used a card base of Rococo Rose with a layer of Lovely Lipstick and then brayered the stamped and embossed image using those two colors.  I added a sentiment panel stamped on one of the die cuts from Ornate Labels and added some of the gorgeous new gems offered in the Ornate Garden suite.

The addition of a faux bow of the Whisper White dotted swiss ribbon topped it off.  Another simple, easy and elegant card.  I think my embossing skills still need some work, but this was a lot of fun to make.  These are some of the products I used:
I am attempting to get this blog back up and running and giving myself some goals for posting that will hopefully get me back into the swing of things.  It appears that we will not be going out on Belmira this season, so NO EXCUSES! DH has decided that traveling east is just not a prudent thing to do this season and I heartily agree.  Soooooo ... I will be spending more time in the craft cave and creating some great projects to share with all of you.  My hit counter stopped working and I have since added a new one and it appears that I am approaching that magic number of 500,000 page views so a celebration might be in order soon!
