"We do not remember days, we remember moments." Cesare Pavese

Hey everyone! Boy... even it has only been a few days since I last posted a card, it feels like so much longer! Got a card today for three challenges. Right now Flourishes is in the middle for their June release and there are lots of fun things happening like their current sketch challenge. Participating in their sketch challenge is just one way to win their entire June release! So I combined their sketch challenge with the current color challenge from ColourQ and the current Shabby Tea Room challenge to use embossing.
I went digging through my stash of papers and found some Jenni Bowlin/Core'dinations embossed cardstock and some Jillybean Soup patterned paper that fit the ColourQ challenge perfectly. (I don't know about you, but I'm terrible about going through what I have to see if it will work for any one of the challenges I like to participate in. Gotta start changing that!!) The Core'dinations cardstock was already embossed so I simply sanded it to bring out the embossing a bit more. The image is from the SU! set Fast & Fabulous. I stamped the line image using SU! Early Espresso and then the coordinating solid image using Cherry Cobbler. The image and the mat were cut using my Spellbinders Long Plain and Scalloped Rectangle dies. The sentiment in from the Flourishes set Lentin Rose.
