Time Out: Merry & Bright

If you're interested in stamps for sale, please click here.  I've updated my for sale page!

Hello there! It's time for another challenge at Time Out.  Our challenge this time is: Embossing with optional twist:  sparkle.  Initially, I thought I'm made a card with traditional heat embossing but I went a different direction.  When I was away on my craft retreat, Chrissy Larson had silver embossing paste.  So...I had to give it a go.  When I see gray, I most often want to add pink.

Thanks for the inspiration Chrissy!  I am also pleased that the amazing Lesley (Always Playing with Paper) is our fabulous guest designer for this challenge. Be sure to pop on over to her blog and check out her gorgeous card.


We love seeing how you are inspired by the challenge at Time Out.  Be sure to pop on over and check out the design team's creations and play along with us.  You will not be disappointed!

We also have a great sponsor for this challenge:  Avocado Arts.  Be sure to pop on over to their blog as well!
