Retro Sketches #80 and Simon Says...Emboss It!

Here's a card I made using this week's sketch at Retro Sketches.

I used my Distress embossing powder for the sentiment.  It's a bit out of my comfort zone because I usually like a really sharp embossed image, but it worked for the old and yellowed (kinda spooky) look I was going for.

I also used something I've never tried before called Flower Soft in "Autumn" to mimic piles of fall leaves on the bottom of the card.

The sketch:

Thanks for looking, keep it crafty!


UPDATE: Hooray! This card was chosen as the Retro Sketches ROCKstar!  How cool is that?
