Car BW houndstooth

I LOVE EMBOSSING!!!!  Dry Embossing, Wet Embossing, I Love it all!!!!

There is nothing like embossing to make a card really stand out.  I am trying to make as many cards as I can before the OWH deadline of August 1.  I try to make masculine cards because so many of the cards I see are feminine. This fits in with 3 challenges I found, so I'm entering this in all three.

All of this paper came from my scrap boxes including the layering papers.
 Yeah!  Use it up!!!!

  3. Diana, What a great card! Love all the interest you created with a classic palette and crisp layout! (And, I'm totally envious that you used scraps -- something I really need to work on by the look of my scrap piles.) Thanks so much for joining us at Words 2 Scrap By. :)
