Feeling Sentimental

I hadn't got round to using this SAB set yet but when Less is More produced a sketch challenge this week I decided to try it out. I also embossed the card with the new needlepoint border from the upcoming Spring/Summer catalogue. I was quite pleased with the result and rthen realised it also fitted with the Dynamic Duo challenge of Soft Suede and Crumb Cake. Gosh two challenges in one! Then while I had the stamp out and bits of crumb cake card on my desk wondered what it would look like stamped in white. Not very succesful so it went in the bin; but then I tried embossing it in white - what do you think?
So now I have two entries for both challenges and then Late Night Stamper's http://lnschallenges.blogspot.co.uk/ wanted heat embossing for their challenge - so definitely fits the bill there as well and also Make my Monday - One for the Boys. Phew!!

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Ink: Soft Suede, Versamark
Stamp Set: Feeling Sentimental (SAB)
Other: white embossing powder. Needlepoint Border EF
