Stamping off the edge...

I have a new card for you today. It is for the Twisted Tuesday challenge. The challenge is to make a card and stamp off the edges. The TWIST is to also use something that is crumpled on the card. So, I used a large background stamp from Stampin' Up! and stamped off the side of the card. I then stamped again using clear Versamark and embossed the image with white embossing powder. I die cut some flowers and layered them after scrunching and squishing and squashing the layers. I sewed around the edges of the design, used tea dye ink to ink the edges and distressed them too! The blue is bashful blue from SU.

Here is a closer look at the embossing. I only used two layers on this card and then the 3D flower. The base cardstock that I used here already had the bits of spots on it. It is some older cardstock I still have from Stampin' Up! 
It is amazing to me all the paper I have! I've made tons of cards and still, more paper is left. I'm beginning to think that it is multiplying on its own.....(and I haven't purchased any either!)  Does anyone else feel this way? 
Anyway, please check out the Twisted Tuesday challenge on the blog and join in on the fun. 

Thanks for visiting and have a nice day! 

I appreciate any and all comments!
