Poppy Seed Challenge #1

Happy Friday, folks! I found this card challenge today over at Lisa Johnson's (Papertrey Ink) blog and wanted give it a try. This is my first card challenge ever, so I was excited to get started. This was a great opportunity to use supplies that I hadn't before, i.e. the mat stack that Meg gave me for my birthday (hello, glitter!) and the flower border stamp from Fiskars. I dunno what's up with the white specks in the clear embossed section. After 2 tries, I just gave up and used what I had because I felt I was just wasting the cardstock. Don't look too hard, okay?

Not too bad for a first try at a card challenge, right? :)

Card Specs:
Embossing powder: Stampendous! in clear
Embossing ink: VersaMark
Ink: StazOn in Mustard

Here's a happy birthday shout out to my beta tester (aka my sister)...she turns 23 today!
