Finally my Mashup!

I'm only a few days late getting my Friday Mashup card together! I'm feeling a little better today after finally getting some sleep in my own bed. For the last 13 nights it's been the chair in the living room because I was up all night and day coughing. Not back to 100% and my cough is still lingering like it's not sure if it wants to leave or stay around. But, I feel a bit more human today. I was able to assemble my card pieces as well and get it finished.

So this week it's Embossing Nature, you are to use some form of embossing with a Nature theme.

I heat embossed my image from Herb expressions in clear after stamping it in Black ink and then I colored it with my inks and a blender pen, I also added some blue around my image with my aqua painter. Then I roughed up my edges a bit and sponged some ink around them as well.

The Peach Parfait card base was run through the Big shot with the Square Lattice Embossing folder, more ink was added to the base as well and then I added a piece of Concord Crush DSP. The ribbon is Pear Pizzaz and my brads are Concord Crush. To tie in the sparkle from the brads I added some Stickles to the Rosemary Flowers.

I used the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary as my inspiration for my layout...

I hope you are all having a great start to your week so far!
