It’s Wednesday which of course means a new Crafty Creations Challenge!!   I have two cards to show you today, but first i will tell you about the CCC for this week.  I am hosting this week and EMBOSSING is the theme!  I hope you’ll join us and play!  Our Design Team has some fabulous inspiration for you, so have a peek at the challenge blog and then show us what you can do!

Here’s my embossed card using Flourishes Thank You set in a long and tall style…

IMG_9031 Flourish Thank You 2 w 50The base is Stampin Up! Suede In Color and the panel is Very Vanilla.  I embossed the top panel using my script folder and cuttlebug.  Everything is sponged in Tim Holtz Distress ink in Old Paper.  I love how this gives it a vintage feel.  The flowers are colored with Copics.  It measures 8.75″ x 4″.

My next card is for this week’s Timeless Tuesday Challenge hosted by Cindy Haffner. She has given us a wonderful sketch to follow this week!
