Make It Monday Challenge #6

Hello! I hope you're having a good day as you read this! I've felt kind of "off" today, and am just now starting to feel like myself--just in time for bed, LOL! Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge for this week is partial impressing/embossing. I used PTI's Book Print impression plate to make my impressed layer (the yellow one). I've added a close up of it in case the overall picture doesn't pick up the impression. I impressed at an angle, because I thought it fit in with my angled layers--in a way, it's like a fourth angled layer, don't you think? That giant flower is one I rescued--it was part of the decoration for an event at church, and they were just going to throw them away! Picture me leaping in slow-motion, my arms outstretched, "Nooooo" escaping from my lips as I catch the blossoms just before they hit the trash! Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit, but come on, a crafter can make anything work, right? I have two more to play with!

Ha Ha, yes, I can picture any one of us doing the slow-mo rescue of a potential crafting object- that was too funny!
Love the bright happy colors on this card, and love that angled impressing too!

Can I just be me and say that that is one big-ass flower? ROTFL! I love that you rescued resourceful....and I love colors and brightness of this card; that border punch is really cool too.

Good Lord, Jill! THis is breathtakingly beautiful. Kinda hurts a bit. ;-) The colors are so vibrant and life affirming. And that mother of a flower is so so gorgeous and totally worth launching the rescue effort! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the other two saves.
