Speedy's Friends' Blog Challenge #8-Embossing

I just love this Momma's Favorite Purple cardstock from Mark's Finest Papers. It is the prettiest purple I have ever found. Today, Claudine has asked for embossing on our challenge cards. I love this embossing folder from Provo Crafts for the cuttlebug. This flower is from the Speedy set called "Butterflies, Dianthus, and Flourishes.  I also stamped this stamp in Versamark and embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I colored it in with my copic markers. Sympathy cards are always the most difficult for me to make and I thought it might be easier to make them before I really needed one.

I look forward to all of Speedy's Friends out there in the land of stamping to join us this week for this great challenge. Faith is so generous in offering a free stamp from a random drawing for every 40 participants. That alone should make this one of the greatest challenge incentives out there. Link your card to
Mark's Finest Papers' Blog. Don't forgot to click over to the store as well to check out all the new things being offered by Mark's Finest Papers. All my fellow Speedy's Friends Blog challenge design team members are listed on my side bar with links to their blogs. Check out what they have been up to in their MFP creations. Happy stamping and good luck in the drawing!!

This is so beautiful in the purple. I love that you got two types of embossing on your card. For some reason I never thought of dry embossing and only the powder melting kind when I looked at the challenge :)

I have my eye on that embossing folder - what a lovely accent that gives to this great card! Purple is my favorite color, and I love how you embossed the flower with gold before coloring! Beautiful!
