A Titanic Challenge!

Guess what movie is featured over at the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge this week? Yup, you guessed it - Titanic! I'm not sure I love the way this card came out but it is what it is, right? I think the flowers need some zhuzhing or something since it seems a bit on the plain side. Man, I really need to sit down at the old crafting table to get my crafty mojo back! It has been a very busy couple of months and I'm very behind!

The challenge was to incorporate navy and silver as a tribute to the Heart of the Ocean and I just love that color combination!! I knew I'd use a navy card base and wanted to try my hand at some more advanced embossing. I am so intimidated by embossing text - it never seems to come out right! This time, I worked hard at lining up my text stamps (they look pretty straight, don't they?), stamped them in Versamark and went for it with silver embossing powder. I still need practice but was happy they were straight and pretty crisp! I then added a couple of fun flowers and some silver leaves to finish it off.
