Hello Card

Hero Arts challenge this month is "Keeping in Touch and Going back to School".  I made this card on Thursday evening to enter before the first deadline of the month.  Still plenty of time to enter - check out the details here.

It has been a while since I have entered a Hero Arts challenge - don't know where the time goes!  I have missed it and am going to try to get back in the groove and start entering again.  The gals in the HA Flickr Group produce amazing work on a daily basis.  Check it out here.
Supplies: Hero Arts CG105 Silhouette Flower and CL184 Thoughtful messages, 
versamark ink and clear embossing powder, Papermania pearls coloured with copics, 
XCut scallop border punch and dark chocolate cardstock, ribbon & ink and pop dots.

I did three or four layers of embossing powder on this card to give it an "enamelled look" and I really enjoyed making this card and look forward to getting it into the mail to "keep in touch" with a friend.

Thanks so much for peeking and I hope you have a great weekend.

Wonderful cards (as allways) since my last visit to your blog. I haven´t been in the mood for card making since I came back from holiday hope it will come back to me ;0) It has been hard starting job after 4 weeks break and when I come home I just enjoy the sun and visit my friends. So for now I just enjoy my blogfriends creations!
Big hug Sanne

This is beautiful, Deirdre! Makes me think of fall and how I long for cooler weather. I love the enamled look of the embossing and will have to give that a try sometime.

I came to comment on your card for mami doodles, but I couldn't help but comment on this one also. WOW! I love the embossing. How in the world are you able to emboss that much area? I do good to get a small image or word done. Fantastic job! Debra (dj1952)
