Perfect Sentiments Challenge 03

It's time for another Perfect Sentiments challenge!

This week the challenge is to make a card with a Get Well sentiment.
The twist~ Embossing! You can choose either dry or wet.

This week, one randomly picked winner will receive a "grab bag" of stamping related products with a minimum retail value of $15.00 (can only be shipped to a U.S. address).

So here's what I have come up with in hopes of inspiring you to play along~

As you can see, I actually did both wet and dry embossing.

My sentiment was stamped in SU! Purely Pomegranate ink in the middle of a Very Vanilla c/s layer punched out with the decorative label punch . It was embossed using Stampin' Up! Gold Glory embossing powder over Versamark ink, using an image from the Four Frames stamp set.

The layers behind the sentiment were die cut using Spellbinder's dies and dry embossed with the Cuttlebug dots embossing folder.

I wrapped some Stampin' Up! Lace ribbon across the top left corner, then put several mulberry leaves and prima flowers on top of it.

And a nice big brass butterfly finding down in the corner completes my card.

I hope you will be inspired to join us this week and share your embossed get well card creation at The Perfect Sentiment!

For more inspiration, please check out my fellow DT member's get well cards on their blogs:

As always, I thank you for stopping by today. I would so appreciate it if you'd take a moment and leave me a comment. I always love hearing from you! :-)
I hope you're having a great week, and that you have been inspired to create- and share!
