Best Wishes - Mojo Monday and The Shabby Tea Room

Welcome!  Today I have a card to share with you that I made for challenges at The Shabby Tea Room and Mojo Monday.

It's technique week at The Shabby Tea Room and the challenge  was to create a project using either wet or dry embossing.  The challenge at Mojo Monday was to create a card based on this sketch.

I love the effect of embossing on pattern paper which reminds  me of trapunto quilting. Using a variety of Basis Grey paper I embossed each strip of paper with a different embossing folder. I then made a double rosette and matted it against two doilies.  For the center of the rosette I used a Lockheart tulip stamp which was stamped and colored then a portion of the image was cut out to create the center of the rosette.  I used the ticket stamp from the Unity stamp set Be Mine and the sentiment is from Papertrey Inc. A little ribbon and some houndstooth paper from Making Memories finished off the card.

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by.
