This week's challenge for the 52 week card challenge over at Scrappin'-N-Chattin' was embossing. I am a little embarrassed to admit that I have had this argyle embossing folder for years and this is the first time I have used it. Thanks to Rhoda's embossing challenge it finally made it out of the package. I used this week's sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping (I love their sketches!) and the card came together really quickly. I used up some papers from the My Mind's Eye - The Sweetest Thing Tangerine 6x6 pad that I have been hoarding for some time now - it's just so hard to cut into that pretty paper -and a couple of wood pieces to finish it off.
Thanks to a great challenge and a fun sketch, I now have a pretty birthday card for my sister's birthday next week!
