Get well

I seem to have achieved a lovely (NOT) blue whiteness to my photo:(

I made this card following the Less is More challenge of embossing and as you can see my poor card became a bit warped:( It has settled down not, but the warp is really noticeable is this photo. I embossed the image and the sentiment with clear embossing powder. This card is for a man so suited not being too fussy.

Image - Molly blooms
Sentiment - PSX stamp
Medium - pencils (used pencils as I knew the promarkers would go right through my card)

I would like to enter this into
Less is More - embossing
Papertake Weekly - bloom and grow
For Fun Challenges - get well
2 Sisters challenge - how does your garden grow
Cupcake Craft  Challenges - in the garden

It's a smashing card and I hope the man in question is soon feeling better. A great numberof people have commented on heat embossing/warping so you are far from alone in this!

What a fabulous card! I haven't played with that stamp very much yet. Your colouring is stunning! If things warp I tend to put them under a heavy book and leave them there for about three days - normally sorts it.

Pinky, it's a great looking card! Love the coloring and shading you've done...very nice!

BTW...I posted a little tutorial on my blog for taking photos anytime of the day or night in a very inexpensive light box....anyone can do it, plus some tips that will help you get the "blue" look out of your card.
