Vintage Bliss JUGS # 82 Wild Card challenge & Card Pattern Sketch # 113

I had and idea in my head on the kind of card I wanted to create for these two challenges however never having done the emboss resist technique I wasn’t sure how bright the colors would turn out for the paper I wanted to use. The technique did turn out way too bright for my paper.  So changed papers and toned down the emboss resist technique with antiquing ( Love that Tim Holtz Distress Ink). Liked the way the Bliss circle turned out added some lace ribbon that I know I have had for over 20 yrs from other crafting adventures then added one of my crocheted flowers and a button. Pretty Happy with the results. http://justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/ http://cardpatterns.blogspot.com/ I have also posted some of my cards at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=66208
