For Aunt Peggy

Good morning, Friends! I hope that you are having a super start to a great weekend! We will be leaving shortly to get to Nick's basketball game. This is a rec game and his competitive games are tomorrow. So much fun! So I will be making this a short post.

Today's card is one that evolved from an idea. I had seen on blogs and in a magazine where you take a piece of designer paper and stamp on top with VersaMark and then emboss with clear emboss powder. Then sponge all around it. The emboss powder resists the ink and the image appears! Cool, huh! So I tried it out with my Medallion stamp and the new First Edition designer paper. I sponged Crumb Cake around it. Then I used a flower from the new Fun Flowers die (in Very Vanilla) and sponged around that. The flower is popped up in the center of the medallion and I used a black button with some linen thread to finish it off!

This card is for my husband's Aunt Peggy. Her husband (Pat's uncle) passed away on Wednesday and we are going to his funeral this afternoon. I think she might like it. Anyway, Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
