Runway Inspired Challenge #55

 Today, I have a card to share that I made for Runway Inspired Challenge #55:


As soon as I saw the photo, I was immediately inspired to use some
Here's my card:


I cut a sheet of the foil paper to 4x5.25" (isn't it fabulous?!)
Using the wonderful floral stamps from the Date Night stamp set, I stamped in Versamark
and then heat embossed in black.
An interesting effect occurred as I was heating the powder.... it started to leave spots on the
flowers -- but it wasn't unpleasant, so I went with it.
I stamped the sentiment (from Mama Elephant's Wanderlust stamp set) in
Versamark and heat embossed it in white.
A white mat finishes it off.

Thanks for looking!
