Here is my card for the Make it Monday challenge at PTI. I chose Lauren Bassen's technique of emboss resist (video #179). There were a few others I would have liked to try, especially Ashley's Stamping a Plaid background and Dawn's Glittered Frames. Maybe if they have another contest, those are the ones I'll do. In the meantime, this was kind of a fun challenge. It took a few tries, and even then, not exactly perfection, but I still learned something. I made a template using the Center Stage cover plate. The other elements are from the Beautiful Brushstrokes stamps and dies sets.
