Thinking of You

My card today is for the August Hero Arts monthly challenge.  It is by no means CAS!  I am using one of the sketches for my design.  I forgot how much fun embossing can be.  It is still one of my all time favorite techniques.  I like the way this turned out, especially the "Old Letter Writing"  contrasted on the graphic paper.

Paper:  October Afternoon, Bazzill and DCWV
Ink:  Versamark and Antique Linen, Distress Ink
Stamps:  Hero Arts digital, Old Letter Writing and HA stamps
Dies/Punches:  PTI and OLFA compass cutter 
Other:  Heidi Swappe edge distresser, Ranger and Tsukineko embossing powders, and HA dots

  2. Nancy it's so great to see you posting!!! You've been missed:). Hope you've been having the delightfully cooler temps in your neck of the woods! The minute they dropped into the 70's here I immediately turned off the a/c and threw open the sashes!! Feels wonderful to be breathing fresh air again! I LOVE your card!! The colors and the embossing are awesome!! Hugs, Robin:)
