Timeless Tuesday #126 - Emboss It!


Time for another Timeless Tuesday challenge, and this week Cindy is our hostess with a challenge to use embossing on your creation... either wet or dry embossing!

For my card, I finally inked up the new Zinnias stamp set (aren't these flower beautiful?!) and paired the image with some Basic Grey "Sweet Threads" papers. I embossed my sentiment from the stamp set with clear embossing powder, and embossed my scalloped border with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder for the challenge. My layout was inspired by this week's Mojo Monday challenge.

Stop over at the Flourishes blog for all the challenges details! We'd love to have you play along, and maybe YOU could be the lucky winner of $10 to spend in the Flourishes online store! Visit the other Flourishes Blog Team girls for more inspiration...

Happy stamping, and thanks for visiting me today!
