Hello Monday!

Happy Monday and hope everyone had a great Superbowl Sunday!

Did you craft and watch the game at the same time?   I was certainly munching on snacks too!

I am usually not that productive when I didn't focus on my projects.  This time is no exception.  I actually made so many mistakes that I've tossed more cardstocks than used them on cards.  LOL.

This is one among few that I am happy with:

I learned this embossing technique at Online Card Classes and wanted to give it a try.  Basically the same embossed image is stamped on both the background and the foreground image and lined up to create some interest in that embossed greeting.  Alas I didn't have many embossing powders so I've used clear in the buildings and Liquid Platinum in the background.  I real life it is pretty cool.  The part I like most is that it is a black card with shimmer and some clear embossing.  Both stamp sets are from Second City manufactured by Basic Grey.  I can't tell you how much I like these products designed by Kelly Purkey.  They are fun, modern, chic and awesome!

My card is linking up to the following:
