Embossed Cherry Blossoms!

It's Saturday my Crafty Friends!  And I am here with Sweet Stamp Shop's biweekly challenge!  :>  The challenge this time is embossing!  Dry or heat!  :>  What do you think I went for?  Heat embossing of course, as it's my favorite!  I played with the lovely Cherry Blossoms stamp set by Sweet Stamp Shop for my card!

I stamped and heat embossed the branch and the lanterns with Zing Chestnut Embossing powder!  Than I colored the lanterns and the cherry blossoms in with a paint brush and tattered angels mist!  I did a few coats to get a deeper color.  Stamped the sentiment and the cherry blossom clusters in pink along the bottom.  I was left with wondering what to do with how to hang the lanterns.  I thought to just handdraw a line but was scared that I would mess up so I decided to do twine!  Quite happy I did!  :>

I hope that you will join us for this challenge! You can get more info here.  There is always a great prize up for grabs and you do not have to use Sweet Stamp Shop's stamps!

Well that's it from me!  :>  Hope you have a great weekend!  We have a busy one full or family fun, cleaning and were doing an open house on Sunday!  :>

Love the pinks and browns in this beauty, Anita! Hey - missed you at ScrapFest this year, just had to say it. We did have fun, though, so hope you can make it next year!
