stamped and embossed

Good morning! 

Stamptember is still going strong at Simon Says Stamp this week with the challenge to "put a stamp on it". 






And, A Blog Named Hero has a challenge to use any kind of embossing on a card. 



 
Here is my card for both:


I love this pretty background stamp from Hero Arts and the squeezed lemonade, picked raspberry and dried marigold distress inks blend very nicely over the white embossing.  (Looks like summer's last hurrah!!)

Have a wonderful day!

Joy your take on the embossing challenge is fabulous. The resist effect makes those ink colors jump right off the card!

One heck of a brilliant card, Joy - amazing colors and great design. I refuse to say goodbye to summer - maybe someday I can chase it around the globe.
