Embellish Magazine's Color Challenge with Embossing

Hey everybody! I finally got to make a couple of cards and let me just tell you...it felt SO good to be crafty! I really needed it! My card today is for the Embellish Magazine's Color Challenge with Embossing!
Autumn had a fitting for her cheerleading suit on Monday, where I told the lady fitting them, that I wanted her skirt to be even longer than she (the lady fitting her) wanted it to be! We try to teach our children modesty, so having a longer skirt is very important. The skirts now days are TOO short! I think the lady thought I was a little crazy when I told her I wanted it 3 inches longer instead of 2! :)

But anyway, the cheerleading sponsor called me and asked if I could make the Representative that fitted them a Thank You card. I was flattered that she asked and of course I said I would! So I broke out the Practicing Creativity You're Dandy stamps and got busy! I have been so busy here lately, that I haven't really got to use this set that much, so I was very excited about using the rays! Courtney has a great video on how to use them on her blog here. Thanks Courtney! :)

Look how Amazing this inspiration pic is! I love all the colors!



I wanted my card to look like a rainbow and I hand cut my clouds and embossed them. And Voila! :) Supplies: Cardstock- (PTI) white, (SU!) pink ; Stamps- (Practicing Creativity) You're Dandy ; Ink- (SU!) brocade blue, pixie pink, yoyo yellow, (Studio G) green ; (Provo Craft) Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder


Well that's it for today, but I will be back tomorrow with another EBTKS Around the House Challenge! :)


Have a Blessed day!

This is so so cute!!! I wish I can play but I have no way to emboss right now. I guess I can if I try sitting on the folder. M told me I had a fat butt... maybe it's still there :P
