At Sugar Bowl Challenge Blog, Marlene has made a great Sketch for Challenge #50, and it was so fun to play with :) There's also a theme to the challenge - Embossing.
Actually, I made another card at first, but when the card was finished, I thought it was something wrong about the image I used...hmmm, it turned out, that the stamp I used,  wasn't a Sugar Nellie stamp *LOL*
So I grabbed another "neglected" image, and started over again, and here's the final result :)

Colouring: Distress Ink - Refills (mainly Pumice Stone and a mix of Spun Sugar & Dusty Concord).
Papers: Memory Box - Gossamer Collection, Bazzill - white & pink cardstock, Canson - Montval aquarellpaper 200g.
