Blogger's Challenge #149: Emboss it!

This card contains a teeny tiny amount of perspiration and a lot of inspiration!  First, the layout idea totally and completely belongs to Mary Jo Price-Williams.  The embossing inspiration is from Robin Merriman.  Notice that both of these fine stamping ladies are blogger's challenge members so you can see I find inspiration from my fellow stampers, too!

To creats embossing style, simply take your brayer with your choice of ink color and brayer on the smooth side of the Textured Impressions folder and run through the Big Shot.  I chose to use Rich Razzleberry (since I had it out for a swap I'm hosting....) and Kraft (soon to be known as Crumb Cake.)

Please be sure to see how the other Blogger's Challenge players can inspire YOU this week!  Happy stamping!
