Just Add Ink Challenge #26


This week, the theme for the JAI challenge was to add some embossing - either heat or dry. It was certainly not hard to add some of both. I made this card yesterday and today hauled off that ribbon - my attempt at the ruffling did not work. I will just go with a bow when I redo it.

I embossed the image from SU Soft Summer and the wording from SU Pendant Park in black and the second layer of SU Baja Breeze has an embossed line border around it. The DSP is from the SU pack Baja Breeze.
Lots of layers again on this card but I enjoy layering and I have raised the image on Dimensionals.

For those of you asking after my brother, he is still progressing slowly, his walking and speech are improving but he is awfully depressed right now. His wife was able to take him out for the weekend to her unit so I think that will make him way happier. He is eating well and putting on the weight he lost but is not interested in things likes reading and watching TV - all part of the depression bit. I will go see him again in a couple of week's time. Thank you so much to you all for thinking of him.

I haven't seen this set used in ages - it's just gorgeous Jean - and a fabulous reminder of what I have hiding in my room - LOL.
Hope your brother manages to get out of his depression soon - it must be soo hard for him - and his family!

Jean, it's great to hear that your brother is slowly recovering. I hope you enjoy your time together when you go to see him. You may be what the doctor ordered.

As for your card, I love the effect of the ribbon. It gives th card such a lift.
