Silvery Melon Mambo

My online friend, Mindy Backes, and a few of HER friends have created a brand-new challenge blog, Fab Friday.  They posted their first card sketch this past Friday, and here's my card.  I am still struggling with getting good photos - really need to construct some sort of light box : /  Pardon the glares and shadows:

It's hard to tell in this photo, but I heat embossed the stamped image from Elements of Style in silver EP onto black cardstock, and added a touch of Silver Glimmer paper for the one little layer.  Colors used are Melon Mambo and Basic Black.  I didn't add a sentiment because there was just so much going on with this card & all the textures.  Trust me, it looks better "for real"!
Off to enter my card!  Play along with Fab Friday - challenges are ADDICTING!
Happy stampin'!

  3. Jeni! I'm so happy you could play with us at Fab Friday! This is so elegant that it doesn't even need a sentiment! Love the embossing! Thanks for playing!
