This card I made purely because my good friend (Blog-wise) Rhonda Van Ginkel, over at Quick Quotes Design Team had the honor of being the sketch designer this go-around!  Yeah, Rhonda!  Great job and I loved the sketch.  Hope you do, too!  Join in for a chance to win some Quick Quotes goodies!
Here's my take on Rhonda's sketch!

Close up of heat embossed chipboard pieces:

This is the first time I tried painting the chipboard with acrylic paints, then inking with a pigment ink pad, and sprinkling the clear powder over. When it melts, it tends to "sink into" the paint. Cool effect! Not as brash as simply applying the embossing ink and then powder.
So, here's my challenge entry over at Quick Quotes!
Wish me luck! I love their products, but don't own any as of yet!
