      Good Tuesday my stamping friends!  My card was inspired by a video I saw on The Lily Pad blog and will be entered in their inspirational monthly challenge.
     Vicky used embossing powder and Distress Stain inks and daubers to make a beautiful card.  I put down the Copics and got out the Distress inks.  I didn't have the dauber colors I wanted so I used only the ink pads.  I hate to admit it but one of my daubers was dried up!  Horrors!
     I didn't pop up the petals or leaves this time.  The orange cardstock was embossed using a diamond shape folder from Sizzix.  The stamp is by Sandi Miller.  The online store I purchased it from is out of business.  
     It was 111 degrees yesterday & today is suppose to be hotter!  I'm going to stay inside and stamp....unless Hobby Lobby beckons me!  Stay cool!


  1. love these colors, especially the flower, neat embossed background to it!
