Tomorrow (or Tuesday... depending on what day you're reading this) is the release day for two new stamp sets in the Rummage Bin Collection at Cornish Heritage Farms! {The Shoe Boutique & Boys Will Be Boys}

If you know my oldest son, Eli... you will understand how excited I was to see this image for the first time! It looks so much like him... and the sentiment on the side describes him perfectly! I was a little nervous about doing this stamp justice because of all of the detail in the image. I'm so use to simple line images and wanted to make a card that was still "me". So... after a couple failed attempts, I decided to try embossing the image. I stamped the image onto shimmery card stock using Versamark and heat embossed with CHF's black detail embossing powder. OH MY GOSH! I wish you could see this card in person! It is so crisp and classy!

This sketch is from this week's CPS layout. The card is held closed by ribbon threaded through a black button.
