Blogger's Challenge

This week the Bloggers Challenge is embossing. This is my kind of challenge.  I decided to make a card using both embossing powder and embossing folder. My background was done using an embossing folder. The frame is die cut and dry embossed. The image was stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder. The image is a stamp from Heartfelt Creations. Actually it is part of a stamp. The whole stamp has three cardinals, but the frame only held two of them, so I masked off the stamp and inked the two birds I wanted. The frame die is also from Heartfelt Creations. It was cut with regular cardstock. I added some texture and glitz with pumice stone Stickles.
Other challenge entered: Play Date Cafe: Red, green, and black.
