Techno Lunchtime Challenge #96

Here's another fun sketch by MJ this week. For my version, I turned it on its side and used the Scallop Edge Punch instead of the Ticket Punch for the corners. When I looked on my shelf at the stamp sets I own, it seemed like Season of Joy would work perfectly for this layout. Layered against the Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder, I believe I was right, don't you?

As you can see, my embossed background is two-toned.....first I brayered the embossing folder with White Craft ink and ran it thought the Big Shot. I'm just loving this look....and it's so simple to do!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. You can see MaryJo's sketch and the other participants by clicking here.

Fantastic card - from my point of view the background almost looks flocked I want to run my fingers across it to feel it LOL!
