Wee Memories #70

Please come play today with Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!!!  It's World Card Making Day and we're celebrating with this week's challenge and it's also our monthly blog hop.  You should have come by my blog from the very talented, Piali , who is our Guest Designer this month.  This week's challenge is to use your favorite technique or style!  When this challenge was issued, I knew EXACTLY what I'd do. 



I LOVE my Tim Holtz Distress Inks soo much!  Pair those up with a new (to me) stamp set that was purchased at a garage sale last weekend, I had my card made in my head!  First, I embossed the leaves in clear embossing powder on a white panel.  Then using the new Limited Edition Distress Ink colors that I was lucky to get my hands on during last week's trip to KC, I colored in my fall leaf panel and just kept adding color until I liked what I saw.  Easy peasy.  Really.  :)



This week's sponsor is the fabulous Unity Stamp Co........and guess what?  You can win a full stamp set.......so come join us for this great challenge and to celebrate a fabulous day of World Card Making!  Your next stop on the blog hop is the super sweet.......Anita.  I am sending this over to Simon Says Stamp for their "Anything Goes" challenge!
