Joy

Another card that is so not me. I try to step out of my box every now and then. The right half of the base card was done by running it thru the Cuttlebug embossing folder. Then I sponged some white ink over the embossed area and also on the left part of the card that was not embossed just to tone the pink down a bit. The main image from Chapel Road Artstamps was stamped on a Technicolour Dye Inks background. The technique is the TJ Newsletter technique, the Jan '08 issue.

So what do you think? Should I keep staying in my box? =O)
