January 1, 2015 House of Cards January Challenge - Embossed


This is my first post as a House of Cards member - I am so excited to be a part of this amazing team and talent.  For the first challenge we were to using embossing and/or colors.  I choose to do embossing.   Go check out the simple rules for playing along with this months challenge HERE and then enter your creation at House of Cards
                                       
                                                        a door tones
I used a stamp set from Hero Arts, Kraft card stock and white embossing powder, embossed my images in white and colored in the open areas with Tombow markers.  I wanted a bright and cheery card so I used purples, blues, and green with a touch of yellow in the sentiment.  I have been playing more with my sequins so I scattered a few on my panel.  I am hoping this card will bring a smile to one of my senior buddies this week when I get her a small giftie package together.  Challenges:
     Crafting from the Heart - anything goes
     Word Art Wednesday  - anything goes
     Tuesday Throwdown - anything goes
     Crafty Gals Corner - anything goes

Happy to see others do craft card as it is one of my favorites to, and white embossing on craft is great. Nice card.
