Thanks so Much

Penny Black Saturday Challenge
We have a great theme for August at Penny Black Saturday Challenge--use your favorite technique. Don't forget to use at least one PB image or Stickeroo.  I enjoy lots of techniques, but one I always return to is emboss resist.  It's great with lots of images including background stamps.  
The one I used by PB is called sweetness.  I began by gold embossing & then sponged on Distress Ink dusty concord & peacock feathers. The panel was die cut with AJVD Polka Dot Rectangle--a gift from a dear blogging friend. The panel was spritzed with shimmer mist & mounted to a purple mat.  I also love to put my sentiment on vellum. Here I used heavy weight vellum & heat embossed the PB sentiment.  Finished off with beautiful gold PPP sequins.  I'm entering SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
