Best Wishes

Hi there Blog Friends ~
I created this card with 2 challenges in mind. The sketch is based on this week’s sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch and the color combo is from this month’s color challenge at Clearly Besotted Stamps.



Once again, I’m borrowing a technique from Laura Bassen. Last week, she embossed...or maybe it's debossed an image, then stamped it (click on her name and check out the the tag with the bunny ~ SQUEAL!!!!!)...so, I embossed the vase and flower, stamped the images, then masked them to stamp the stem and leaf. It may be difficult to see on screen, so here is a close-up:



Well, that’s it for me...I hope everyone is having a great President's Day holiday weekend (here in the U.S.)...I also hope those who are dealing with snow and extreme temperatures are staying warm and cozy! Take care ~
Barb
