Embossed Lovely

This card below, is the card I made for the featured Stamper Challenge.  Featuring  Jodi, aka Kharmagirl on Splitcoast.  Again, another amazing gallery!  I was initially going to do a different card but then I saw this one and thought I could do a decent job!  I do not have the Kind thoughts set (but wish I did) and since I’m obsessed with my Cuttlebug and had the perfect folder (in my opinion) for the center, that’s what I did!

I changed the River Rock on Jodi’s to Sahara Sand on mine.  Also, I obviously used my Cuttlebug to emboss two layers instead of scoring and stamping.  Another change I made was the size of the card.  I just made it the standard size.  After I embossed the center piece I realized that I should have tried the negative effect technique so I tried to put a bit of white ink on the raised parts after the fact.  Sort of worked!  I did stamp a birthday sentiment from Stamping Bella on the bottom edge in Whisper White but it’s kinda hard to see in the photo! 

Thanks for looking!
