"In My Thoughts" Embossing for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Blog Challenge

This week at Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge Blog our wonderful sponsor is Dazzling Ace Designs!!!! Of course it's always Anything Goes but this week with an optional twist - Embossing!!! 

I loved the image "In My Thoughts" sew much, I decided to use it for this card also:

  • Recollection black for size A2 card with scraps for the background
  • background was embossed with Cuttlebug Embossing Swirl Border
  • I wanted this to look vintage and colored lightly on her bow with Prisma Colored Pencil like I had seen earlier pictures of my grandmother that had been "colorized"
  • corners were cut using the built-in Essentials in my E2 to give the illusion this is an antique photo album to finish my card               
I thank you for stopping by today and can't wait to see your creations this week with Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Blog Challenge!!!!
