Oh the Places You Will Go!

Hello, again!  Today's card is an exercise in heat embossing.  My DH made me a nifty heat gun holder and it makes it a cinch to heat emboss.  The challenge at Sketch with a Twist requires the use of a banner so I interpreted that as a banner of pennants for this card.  Then you have to follow the sketch which I turned 90 degrees.  I had fun doing it and it will probably be entered in the following challenges: Creative Card Crew--Masculine, LEJ Designs--Vintage, Lady Bug Crafts Ink TLT-Anything Goes , Through the Craft Room Door--Anything Goes, Vickie's Challenge--Anything Goes, Stamping Sensations --The Great Outdoors,  Challenges4Everyone--Anything Goes, Pink Gem Challenge Blog--On the Move, The Pink Elephant--CAS, Pin and Tack --Anything Goes, Spark Your Creativity!

Kren, what a wonderful card utilizing the heat embossed images and shapes! Looks great with this monochromatic theme, and in the shades of blue you've chosen. A great scene with an awesome background. Love that sentiment - so appropriate for many cards. hugs, de

A holder for your heat gun sounds perfect Kren, I eventually put a hook under my desk for mine but it's not ideal.

A lovely tone on tone card and love those funky houses.

Thanks so much for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations challenge this month.
