Time Out #195

I seldom buy card kits but I did get the July one from SSS called Garden Greetings.  I don't know what it was about it that caught my eye except I thought I could make some beautiful CAS cards with it.  I also liked the sentiments which is an important factor for me.  I used the stamp set for my card for Time Out who wants us to use a colored card base.

I gold heat embossed one of the images twice on light aqua cardstock, leaving a space for the sentiment.  I inked the edges with CP ink to give a glow in the middle.  I got my panel too close to the ink pad and it absorbed some of it on the top in a blob so I had to cut the panel down. To keep with a colored card base, I took another piece of aqua and inked it even more heavily and popped up the top panel.  Not quite what I had in my head but I'm working with what I have.
