Telephone Greetings


We're in the midst of being battered by Tropical Storm Leslie at the moment.  Thankfully it was downgraded from a Category 2 storm to a TS and is passing by to our east so not a direct hit.  We have gales and rain at the moment and so far (knock on wood) the power has stayed on so I'd better type quickly and get this posted just in case!

I'm playing along with a few challenges with this card. I was initially inspired by the Paper Smooches Sparks Retro Fab challenge.  I knew I wanted to emboss the phones in white on colored blocks I so am playing along with CAS-ual Fridays Embossing Challenge and the Moxie Fab Repeptitiona Challenge.   I'm also joining the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember challenge to use stamps.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse) Stampin' Up

Stamps:  (Telephone from Perpetual Bliss, Sentiment from Metropolis) Paper Smooches
Ink: (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Raspberry Ripple) Stampin' Up
Embossing Powder:  (Seafoam White) Ranger
Gems:  (Lily White assortment) Doodlebug
Punches:  (1 7/8" square) McGill, (Corner Rounder) Marvy Uchida
