with gratitude 33

Hi there! So happy that the weekend is here ~ aren't you? I challenged myself to join along with this week's PTI Make it Monday challenge: Dry Embossing over Heat Embossing. I combined a variety of stamps from various PTI stamp sets and created a rather clean and simple thank you card for a dear friend of mine:
I stamped the big blooms with VersaMark ink, heat embossed using pink and silver embossing powders then dry embossed using the PTI embossing plate. I layered on a couple of silver embossed flourishes and a sentiment:
For color inspiration, I joined along with this week's ColourQ challenge:
 and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Cardabilities sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
