Creative Inspiration - Embossing ~ Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Pink, Green & Brown & One Stop Crafts Pink & Brown


My choir concert went very well last night. I think that the Canadian choir from Niagara who joined us for this concert enjoyed singing with us and also enjoyed the party afterwards where we could chat at greater length. My husband and I acquitted ourselves well with our respective small solos and we received many commendations from fellow singers. Today however, my feet are killing me... all that standing still for the rehearsal and the performance are to blame I think. Still, you don't have to stand up to make cards do you!!
I was rather pleased how this one turned out. The corner sentiment stamps are from Heidi Swapp, inked with Stazon timber brown. The flower is embossed from a brass stencil on Cor'dination paper and gently sanded. The pink is the whitewash variety and the brown is the regular sort. The pink paper and brown card are from my local Paper Mill store.
