Stained Glass: Reasons to Smile Card

I am home from Convention and totally exhausted!! But smiling all the while! It was a great week at Convention and it's good to be home with the kids again, but I'm so tired and still have so much to catch up on! I didn't quite get through all my email yet, so if you're waiting for a response, hold tight!

Here's a card I designed using the July promotional set called Reason to Smile. (Find out how to get this stamp set for only $5.) We made this at our group meeting last month and in Stamp Club this morning. I'm not happy with the photo, so I may try to get a better one and update this post later. The flower just looks so dark here. I embossed it in black on vellum cardstock and colored the back of the vellum with markers. (You may have seen the tutorial for this technique, called Stained Glass, in my newsletter. Not subscribed yet? Check out the Newsletter Sign-Up box on the left side of my blog.) The technique is easy and the results are stunning!
