Embossing dry or wet and /or sketch is the theme at The Pixie Cottage this week. I decided
to use a little of both on mine. The stamp is called Greeting by Artish. You can find this and
many more wonderful image at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More.

I used a dotted swiss & double diamond embossing folders. The image is water colored, cut out with a Spellbinder label #10 and faux stitched. The center dots are embossed with black. The green was cut with the Spellbinder scalloped oval.

The embossed background was stitched onto the black. The sentiment was cut out the Spellbinder label #14 embossed and faux stitched.
A fluffy bow from the hand dyed ribbon completes it. Be sure to stop by to see the talented team cards.
