Sweet Wishes

The Less is More challenge this week is a One Layer card with the theme of 'Sweet Things'.   While I was looking through my stamps for the one I had in mind, I came across this image and sentiment, both freebies from a while ago, so decided to go with these instead.  

 I used a Poppystamp 'Stitched Main Street Tag' to emboss the card blank, the first time I've tried this technique, but I'm sure I'll be using it again. I eventually stamped the image and sentiment with Stazon 'Jet Black'.  I tried Memento and Versafine stamp pads first, but the stamping was quite fuzzy, probably to do with the quality of the freebie stamps.  The image is coloured with Promarkers.  

I am joining in the following challenges:

This card is so right for the Sweet Things challenge. Embossing with dies is a good technique and one I tend to forget although funnily enough I did actually do it today, first time for ages, great minds!!
