Hi, Friends......

Here with a quick card I made after Little Peach was in bed tonight.  I couldn't resist the delicious colors that were in the MFP Friends of Speedy TV challenge - turquoise and orange.  Yummy!!

I love emboss resist, but for some reason I usually reach for patterned paper, instead.  (Might have something to do with the countless stacks of it I have!!  Ha!)  Tonight, I was inspired by the lovely background that Janine Brain made in her sample card and decided to do a simple embossed floral background. 

I wish I could say I masked the Thank You banner, but it is a piece of cardstock.  I purposely did not put it up on foam or mount it on a contrasting color so it would blend into the background.  I love that in the photo it looks masked.  It doesn't blend quite that well in real life, but it is close.  I like that effect.

Supplies I used include:  Serendipity flower stamp, Distress Ink - Broken China, Prima flowers, Coredinations orange cardstock, and misc stash items:  rhinestone, TY stamp, etc.

Hey, I have another new follower.....#31:  Karen Ladd.  Welcome!!  Karen is another of the MFP Challenge regulars and makes some a-m-a-z-i-n-g cards and LOTS of 'em!!  Eeek!  How does she have time????  She's good, that's all.  She doesn't have a blog (we need to urge her gently in that direction!!!) but she does have a Flickr account which I linked with her name.  Thanks so much, Karen, for becoming a follower.  I feel like we are already friends from seeing each other's cards in the challenges all the time!!  This ginormous smile is for you:
:))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

I am very slowly creeping toward 50 followers.....which will mean a giveaway!!!!  Hooray!!!

Thanks everyone for stopping by my blog!  Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Another beautiful card Janis, and I also LOVE embossed resist! What a great reminder to give this technique a try the next time I sit down in my craft room. The turquoise and orange, with that floral embellishment is so colorful and fun!
