For Lynnda

I made this card for my friend, Lynnda. She moved a few towns away. Not far, but I miss her just the same. Of course, she used to live 10 minutes away and I hardly ever saw her, but at least she was close KWIM?

The photo is not the best because I did not take it in natural light. It was dark outside and I wanted to get this in the mail today so she will get it on Monday (everyone needs happy mail on Monday) so I went ahead and took it in my stamp room. This card was inspired by Julia S. She made this card a while ago but it has been in my favorites for a long time and I finally found the perfect reason to case it.

I stamped the flowers in Versamark and the embossed them with Iridescent Ice Embossing Power. Then I cut out a rectangle to use as a mask (the hardest part of this card) and then sponged on all the color. The ink resists the embossed area, making the image pop out. You can see a tutorial on this technique here.
