House Mouse Challenge #19 - Embossing

Did you know that there is a House Mouse Challenge Blog that hosts weekly challenges? The challenge this week is embossing. You can create whatever project you would like using a House Mouse or Friends image along with any type of embossing (dry, heat, pre-embossed papers, etc.). So to meet the challenge requirements I made this Friendship Warms My Heart Card.

The card starts with Bazzill Lagoon cardstock as the base (5.75" X 5.75"). I heat embossed a stamped image using VersaMark and white embossing powder on the left edge of the card. I stitched around a square piece of Pink Paislee Lunch Hour paper and added my colored image of Warmth for Winter and the sentiment with a piece of brown wrinkled ribbon between them. The image was colored with watercolor pencils and a little Angel Wings Shimmerz was added to the yarn in the image for some sparke. I inked with Color Box pink pastel chalk ink around the edges of the card, stamped image and sentiment.
The challenge goes until January 5th so join in!
