Hugs From Afar


I hope your week is off to a good start. This past weekend was a beautiful one here in Pittsburgh, and now that we are back to cold and rain I am feeling pretty desperate about the arrival of Spring.

I made a little something last night for this week's CASE Study challenge. The muse for the month of March is none other than the Julie Ebersole. How about this beautiful bit of inspiration?

I couldn't resist the white heat embossing on Kraft cardstock, so I made that the focal point of my card.

I used the Borderline set from Verve Stamps on my card. I started with the sentiment, stamping and embossing it in white and then stamped the heart border around it. I selectively colored a few hearts, just enough to give it a rainbow effect. I do have to say that coloring in embossed images, especially on Kraft, really has a fabulous look. And since I didn't want anything competing with that little panel for attention, I left the background plain. Those little rainbow hearts can be the star of the show :)

Thanks for stopping by - have a great day!
