To my chagrin, the roses, which I had not realized until I went to photograph the card, are not oriented in every direction, but there is clearly a right-side-up to this stamp, so I'm going to have to try to redo this card, sigh. I'm not sure it will survive the surgery!

Once again, I am using the rose background for an Impression Obsession challenge, which this week is, happily for me, Fun with Flowers. For this card, I embossed the image with clear embossing powder, then sponged black onto the leaves, and gray onto the flowers. I was really nervous that the black ink would stain the clear embossing, so I was so relieved that it did not! Because the background is white, I carefully outlined the flowers and leaves to make sure they were well defined. I then ironed off the clear powder. The text is from the Greetings: Top Edgers die set.
