PPA272 & PP267

I made a birthday card for a friend of mine. She loves pink, and things with a feminine style.
I was inspired by the Pals Paper Arts' sketch challenge, and the Paper Players' clean-and-simple challenge (leaves).
I tried an embossing resist technique for the first time, and I liked it very much.
Stamp: Lighthearted Leaves, Endless Birthday Wishes
Paper: Whisper White, Strawberry Slush
Ink: VersaMark, Tangelo Twist, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush
Accessories: Embossing Powder (Clear, White), Stamping Sponges, Cording Trim (gold), Metallics Sequin (gold), Dimentionals

Thanks for stopping by!

This is gorgeous! Love the white leaves on the pretty colors, and the way you did the sentiment. Well done! Thanks for joining us at Pals Paper Arts.

Beautiful card and if she likes pink she'll love this! The emboss resist was perfect for those leaves. It reminds me of a fall sunset! Thank so much for sharing with us at the Pals Paper Arts this week!

Thanks, Jacqueline! They're warm and pretty colors, aren't they?

Thank you for your sweet comment, Michelle! It took me a pretty long time to choose the sentiment - the right size (length), and the font which match the design of the card.

Thanks so much for your kind comment, Dawn! I thought about a title of this card, but I couldn't think of anything good, so went with no title. I should have titled this card "Fall Sunset"! ;-P

Thank you for your sweet comment, LeAnne! I want to try the resist technique with blue/green too.

Stunning and elegant all at the same time! I love the additional layer of white, truly sets it off! Thanks for joining the challenge this week!
