Hi everyone! Happy Friday! TGIF!

I will be SO glad when this week is over! I have TONS of stamping to do this weekend...here's hoping my little one gives her mom time to get some stamping done!!

Here is a card I created for this week's challenge on the There She Goes Blog, TSG90, Wet Embossing!! My embossing gun has actually been getting some use these days, so I was well prepared for this challenge!!

I pulled out the previously released Poppies set from There She Goes. So often I go for a "cutesy" look, which is my favorite, but for this card I wanted a more elegant feel.

I stamped the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X Press It Blending Card and colored them with markers. The shadow around them was actually done with chalks. I am ALWAYS so inspired by the sweet Inge and how she does this, so I thought I would give it a shot too.

For the wet embossing, I stamped the poppies definition, also from Poppies, in Versamark onto the Orange Zest cardstock and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. SUPER easy and it adds such a nice touch...no?

I kept this one super simple, with an embossed background done with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder, and a fun polka dot ribbon. Of course, I had to fit some of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles into my design too! The layout is the sweet Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC100!

We would love for you to play along with this challenge too!
