Speedy The Cat's Friend's Challenge #8

This week, over at the Mark's Finest Paper Blog, the challenge is to emboss. Woo Hoo, that is right up my alley!
I created this card using something my DD and I found while cleaning out craft drawers last night. The border and inside panel were both made by her, years ago for a scrapbook page. We left it out and both said it need to be used. Enter, the STFC and I worked the color scheme around our find. The border was a 12" but I was able to cut it to work. I used Mark's Finest set called Cupcake Birthday, which I won doing a hop here. The embossing is a new Tim Holtz, Fade called Regal Flourishes. I used Grass Green and Pure White, Pure Luxury cardstocks. The small strip of dp is an unknown. I colored my image with Copics #'s E55, R37, R39, RV10, Y17, YG06, YR02. I did some soft sponging with Colorbox ink around my sentiment. My accents are clear gems and some clear lacquer on the cherry. The inside panel has the addition of two rows of red line tape and micro beads.

To all the fathers out there, I want to wish you a very special day full of whatever floats your boat! Here, we are just grillin' and chillin'. See you again real soon!

Wow, the inside is just as beautiful as the outside! Love the color combination and the embossing. Thanks for the prayers. I called the AC people earlier and they told me they had so many callers ahead of me that they would have to call me back. Still waiting to hear from them! Rain is our only hope until they get here! Have a great weekend and stay cool.
