An Elegantly Embossed Card

I did another "kill two birds with one stone" it was a perfect fit. CAS-ual Friday challenge (Embossing) with Penny Black Challenge make an elegant card. Here's my card:

This was really fun to do...took a while but it was fun.

Stamps...all Penny Black: Majestic Composition, Hello Friend and To You They were all stamped with Memento black ink.

For the "leaves" I embossed a green piece of card stock using a Cuttlebug Embossing folder and cut them out.. that was kinda a pain but it was worth it. Dk looked at them as I was almost done and said they needed a pop of color so I sanded them some... he was right. Note to self.. next time sand it before cutting them out. Thankfully with glue and G09 they could fix any boo boo's not that there were any of course. ;)

The card was looking a little plain so I punched it up by clear embossing the majestic composition stamp. The flower was colored with Y32, Y35, Y38.

Easy Peasy
