Good Luck with Faux Embossing!

Yep. I tried me out a new technique tonight--faux embossing! And I am so pleased with the results, that I couldn't wait to share it with y'all! :)

I'm gonna get straight to the point and show you the card first, then tell you what challenges I'd like to enter it into. I'm much more pleased with this card than the first one I posted this month, so if you don't agree, please don't tell me! ;D

Here's the card and details~



Isn't it FUN?! And so seasonally appropriate. Fabulous! And faux embossing is so fun to play with--I made another card with the same technique that I'll show you tomorrow. :) All you need to do is either punch or die cut paper in the same color as your panel and attach them as you desire. For this card, I used a small heart punch to create four leaf clovers. :)

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges~
