Migraine Monday

That's what today feels like anyway!  I went to bed with a little headache and woke up in the middle of the night with a pounding migraine that I can't seem to shake. I should not complain though because Brett has had a constant migraine since last Tuesday. I have no idea how he is able to go to work because it was all I could do this morning to drag myself out of bed!  I wanted to get at least one card finished today for Friday's Card Camp though, so I managed to pull myself together for a few minutes at least. :) I used the challenges at Black Tie Fridays and Freshly Made Sketches.

I already have a few fall cards planned, so I thought this would be a nice change of pace.

I used Pool Party and Bermuda Bay as my two shades of teal.  I thought the flowers that I stamped in Pool Party needed a bit more oomph so I used a sponge dauber to add some Bermuda Bay to the center of each flower.  After I did my stamping I embossed the entire sheet of Shimmer White with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I then inked the edges with VersaMark and embossed them with black embossing powder. I thought about embossing or stamping the Bermuda Bay strip of cardstock, but decided there was enough going on with the rest of the card already so I left it be.  That's hard to do sometimes! lol
