Emboss Resist Swallowtail Card

Hello friends! Many of you know I'm from Oklahoma and our weather the last couple of days have been quite tragic. I wanted to let you know that my family is safe and everyone is accounted for. My brother and several relatives live in Moore where the large tornado hit but their homes weren't in the path of the destruction. I appreciate all your thoughts!

 I have a quick post to share this Emboss Resist Swallowtail Card I made using the colors from this weeks Sunday Stamps challenge. The challenge colors are: Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade. I have plenty of patterned paper in these colors but I decided to combine the color challenge with Cards in Envy and 'ABC' Challenges to stamp and create your own background. I stamped and embossed the Swallowtail onto white card stock and then sponged on Lucky Limeade and Daffodil Delight ink. I used a blender pen to add the Rich Razzleberry accents. My first idea was to stamp the sentiment onto a decorative label, but after I had it ready to adhere, I didn't like the way it looked. So, I stamped the sentiment directly onto my background paper. A few rhinestones to add a little bling and my Emboss Resist Swallowtail Card was complete. Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
