Way to Go! Congrats!

It’s Britt, here today with a fun way to say “congratulations” to someone special!

In this card I mixed brightly colored, trendy embellishments with a monochromatic embossing technique.  I really like the contrast these items give, not only in color, but in style.


I usually associate the white-on-white embossing with more elegant, sophisticated designs, but by choosing a bold, graphic embossing folder and pairing it with more fun and hip embellishments I was able to give this technique a more fresh and funky life.
