Your Next Stamp Challenge #7

Your Next Stamp Challenge

Yay! I have another Your Next Stamp Challenge today! Our challenge was set by Maylee and is "Embossing" - please include some kind of embossing on your project.

Here's my card:

I used New Year's Party Fhiona. I paper pieced her dress and colored the rest with Copics. I stamped and cut out an extra crown, which was popped up on a bit of foam booster and I also added glitter and a Swarovski crystal. I also added glitter to her earrings, bracelet and shoes.

I used some Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper and embossed the strip of turquoise paper with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder (still my fave!). The final touches were some buttons, variegated pink crochet thread, and a sentiment from the Flying High Fhiona set.

The sketch is from Sketch Saturday and was created by fellow YNS DT member, Simonne! Not only that, but YNS is sponsoring the Sketch Saturday challenge this week and you could win the Shopper Fhiona set!

We hope you'll play along with us at YNS! One lucky participant will be drawn at random to win $10 in YNS Stamp Bucks!! You don't have to use YNS images on your card, but if you do you'll get a double entry in the draw!

Also, the challenge hostess will choose her favorite card, and that winner will get the YNS Challenge "Top Pick" blinkie to proudly display on their blog PLUS $5 in YNS Stamp Bucks! You must use a YNS image to be eligible to be chosen for Top Pick.

Full details can be found at the YNS Challenge Blog. TFL!
