TLC183 Krafty Cardinal...

This is a few days late for the SCS challenge but no's here now!

I made this card for the new technique challenge on Splitcoast Stampers this week which is faux dry embossing, VERY cool!!! but realized that I could also tinker it for Sharon Johnson's JULIE IS HOT!! challenge!!

Don't you just love it when that happens!!?

When I was over at Marcie's yesterday watching that cute little guy Jake, (cutest baby in the world by the la da la) I borrowed a piece of her new Papertrey Pure Poppy paper and her new Inkadinkado Cardinal Silhouette stamp and her ink!!!

I used Versamark for the first image (the shadow) and then white ink - sorry don't know which brand - for the 2nd image!

I highlighted it with my glitter pen and then proceeded to layer the image up onto white and kraft cardstock!

I used my new border embossing folder, but I used it three times - of course the time I don't need a border, that's all I have!!

Those pretty baubles are the crystal bon bons from Stamping Bella and they are just like a mirror!! I love them!!

I posted two pictures because they are both such different colours but both the same card....... KWIM?? That drives me crazy.......

Have a great day!!
