Wisteria Blossom Hello- Stampin' Up! Blended Bloom

 I had some fun with embossing the other night while the boys were getting ready for bed.  My stamp room is upstairs so I can "supervise" the getting ready for bed process while playing with paper and ink!  How convenient right?  Though sometimes I lose track of time working on a card and have to tear myself away and say good night to the boys and turn off lights.

  This card came together pretty quickly using the CAS(e) this Sketch challenge and the closed Colour Me challenge.

  Using the large Blended Bloom single stamp and embossing it with white embossing powder onto Wisteria Wonder cardstock and then then I cut it out.

  I mounted it onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock that was partially embossed with the new Elegant Dots embossing folder.  I left the lower part plain to emboss the "hello" in black.

  I used a row of pearls and a narrow strip of retired Smoky Slate ribbon to separate the embossing from the sentiment. One corner is rounded just because.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
