The card today is one that we will be making at my card class on Friday evening. It’s a Mother’s Day card, however, if the sentiment was changed it really could be used for any occasion.
This card uses the emboss resist technique. I decided to use vellum card stock and stamped the En Francais image with versa-mark, heat embossed with White Embossing powder and then sponged all with a mixture of Rose Red and Pretty in Pink ink.
The Pink Pirouette card stock was stamped using versa-mark as well.

This is also my entry to the Paper Players’ challenge this week which is a theme challenge and is so right for Spring.
Stampin’ Up! is also having a Scrap booking promotion for the month of May. There are stamps available in wood or clear, and for those using MDS (scrapbooking and card software) there are several bundles that can be purchased.
Guess what! You don’t have to wait for a shipment for the MDS bundles as they can be downloaded right after they are purchased. Talk about instant gratification.
That’s it for this evening as I am off to post to the challenge. Until next time….
