You Brighten My Day!

 Hello friends!
I have a super bright card to share here today. The creative process was a bit long, but I think it is worth the time and effort. 
When I made this card, I truly enjoyed each step of the process--taking my time to emboss, adding colors, layers and embellishments.
I am not sure if this is your kind of card, but I thought I would share it anyway.

This card involves multi-color stamping, embossing and emboss resist. If you love stamping in colors, you might want to give it a try? Background stamps are my favorite kind of stamps, especially the butterflies! All this was done with the help of MISTI.

About this card (you need MISTI for this)
~color stamping with MISTI
~clear-emboss the entire image
~add colors to background (Emboss Resist)
~sandwich it together with a piece of card stock (with the help of Stitched Rectangles)
~the sentiment was embossed on vellum with a piece of pattern paper underneath.

So bright and colorful! Great use for the MISTI to be able over stamp in Versamark. WE all have lots of colors of inks, but maybe not so many colors of embossing powder.
