Always Iridescent


Another day, another challenge! Today's Ways to Use it Challenge over at splitcoast was to use embossing powder. I was just thinking yesterday how much I enjoy using embossing powder, but rarely take the time to use it. I was glad I was able to play today. My daughter is feeling much better today so we may head over to the mall to redeem my gymboree gymbucks, go to the postoffice and grocery store. I'm hoping the outing will do us all some good. We haven't gone anywhere ALL week...yes...I am going stir crazy!!!!


Anyway, back to the card. I just got this set in the mail yesterday as you can see from my previous post, and I was itching to use it. I thought that it would look great embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder. I was right. I love how the bird turned out! Thanks for fluttering by!
