OWH SKETCH #110 AND HEAT EMBOSSING

Wow! Can you believe it is already Wednesday, not only that but also the end of February? WOAH, where has the time gone?  It just seems like yesterday that my son told us he joined the Army and would be leaving in March.  Well that time is here upon us with him leaving this Sunday. 

Today’s card is for Operation Write Home’s* Sketch #110 challenge and incorporates heat embossing for the tutorial challenge. It is also for their Mother’s Day challenge.

The papers on this card are Craftwell card stock and K&Company Julianne specialty paper.

The Tuesday tutorial was about heat embossing, which is one of my favorite techniques. I used Hero Arts Poetic Prints Three Butterflies and SU clear embossing powder to get the green-on-green effect.

The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon Swiss Dots Grosgrain Moss ribbon. I added a strip at the bottom that is embossed with a Cuttlebug border embossing folder.  Pearls, flowers, and a sentiment from my computer finish off the card.

NOW FOR THE CHALLENGES:
