Sunny Challenges 009/11 Heat Embossing

I spent this afternoon making my card for this week's Sunny Challenges which is a sketch combined with heat embossing.
I used the flourish out of Elements of Style to clear emboss my Marina Mist layer adding the components of the sketch on to this.  The new Stitched Stocking set from SU is fabulous to use.  To some it may be a bit fiddly to add the toes and heels but it's definitely worth the effort. My stockings wouldn't fit on an A5 card so I made mine square but kept to the sketch. The colours used are Whisper White, Garden Green, Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso.  A gorgeous combination.  The panel with the stockings hanging from it represents a piece of timber.
I had this card in my head when I started and I'm pleased to say it's turned out exactly as I envisaged.

Thanks so much to the Friday Mashup girls...I made one of this week's Mashup Glamettes with my Time card.  Pretty exciting.
My Chiropractor visits continue and I think some good is being done.  I'm back to my walking in the mornings..slowly...but it's a start.
Hope everyone is well and thanks for visiting my blog.
