Fresh Batch Challenge

I stumbled upon a new(to me) challenge blog. It's called the The Fresh Batch from Stamps and Smiles. This week it's a sketch challenge so I used that and combined it with this week's ABC challenge which is E for embossing. I'm a little out of control with my embossing lately, I feel like I use it on EVERY card so having to use it for the ABC challenge was not too difficult! I also used this week's Paper Play Challenge which was to make a white card with just one accent color.

I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder and some ribbon from my stash. I really liked this sketch and am looking forward to more Fresh Batch challenges. The brads are blog candy I got from my friend Tina!
