Humble Artist's Swap for April 10th

Yes, I am very late in posting this card. Life gets in the way often and some cards were a little late. Then I got really busy and just didn't have time to get through all of the photos. So here is my contribution for April 10th.

The guidelines were:
-Use at least one alphabet stamp
-Have at least 3 stamped images
-Use at least one colour cardstock from 3 different CTMH colour palettes
-Use wet or dry embossing
-Must have 7 layers somewhere on your card
-Must have at least 3 embellishments
-Must use paper from Spring 2010 Idea Book only

My embossing is the "B" alphabet stamp, from E-sized Friendship Alphabet. I inked in Vineyard Berry and kissed to a background stamp from Noted Backgrounds, then stamped. I inked the "B" again in Versamark and over stamped. I added clear embossing powder and melted it with my heat gun.

I used a Nestabilities to cut my label shapes. The patterned paper is from Topstitch.

All supplies are Close To My Heart.
