A Faux Embossed Diva Challenge

Yep you heard me right, this is my SCS technique lovers challenge-to faux emboss, and Julee's Meet the Verve Divas challenge for this week. I don't USUALLY participate in the technique lovers challenge, but this was a FABULOUS technique, so I wanted to try it!! You can find the directions here. I messed it up a tiny bit, but I loved the way it looked, so I decided to keep it. I used white Stazon and Baja Breeze to stamp the ferns from my SU set Petal Prints on a piece of Baja Breeze CS. I layered it with White and Chocolate Chip. The diva challenge for this week was a sketch challenge, so that is what I used for this card. The sentiment is from the Verve Stamps set Uplifting phrases. The rest of this is pretty simple to figure out, but as always, if you have ANY questions, please don't hesitate to ask!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
On a personal note, I am working at the Post Office this week, so my nephew is staying with my Mom. WAHHHHH!!! I miss him already, so Mom, if you are reading this, give him a big hug and kiss for me!!
