Bitty Baby

This is my 2nd post of the day. Scroll down to see my card for Becky's Compose a Card Challenge #2.

PTI introduced their Make It Monday challenge series. Every Monday there will be a technique video posted by a Papertrey Team Member or Nicole, showcasing a nice balance of basics and new innovations to cater to everyone's skill levels.
Today's technique is Emboss Resist. I had never tried this so I learned something new. I CASE'd Nicole's card as well. My brain is tired after all the many wonderful challenges this week.

I used a sentiment from Bitty Baby as the background in Spring Moss for my emboss resist part of the project. I clear embossed the baby carriage, then rubbed Spring Rain ink with a paper towel as Nicole suggested over it. I matted this layer onto Spring Rain cardstock.

I used background basics: diamonds with versamark ink on Spring Moss cardstock for the bottom layer. I finished the card with Ripe Avacado ribbon.

Things I learned for next time:
A solid image will work better than a line image
Light colors are so hard to photograph.

I am dying to know what the scalloped edge is all about!! Aren't you?
