Only One

This week the challenge at Bloggers Challenge is backgrounds. I love a backgrounds challenge; however, it's always difficult to decide which way to go.  My background today is the result of my trying to catch up with the lessons in Creative Chemistry 102. In one of the lessons Tim showed how to use a stencil to dry emboss. In this card I used my chevron stencil to emboss a piece of Core'dinations cardstock. Once I embossed it, I sanded the embossing. I have a background with lots of texture. The stamp I used is from SweetStamps. I stamped it several times. First I stamped it on white cardstock and heat embossed the frame with silver. I stamped it on kraft and then again on designer paper so I could paper piece her clothes. The flowers are flower soft with Viva Decor painted leaves. The sentiment comes from a Heartfelt Creations paper pad.

I am also entering this card in these challenges: Ink on My Fingers Sunday Challenge -- use violet; Take a Word -- Hats & Things; Sweet Stamps -- anything goes.

Beautiful design, I love the embossed background you made from the stencil and how you added the paper piecing to the Cameo Lady forger dress.
