JUGs7



Everything old is new again! I was so glad that when the Just Us Girls team posted this challenge, they said about going old school and using our much unloved brass stencils! Our challenge this week is to dry emboss on a Birthday card. I pulled out these neglected beauties and there was a Birthday cake staring at me. I accented it with chalks and sponging around the edges. Pearls, Prima's, and MS branches are my accents. The sentiment is from Melanie Muenchinger's Inspiration Mosaic set by Gina K. Designs. Happy Birthday, Dana!
