Totally epic...

Hello and happy Monday to you!

So this week's Farm Fresh challenge over at TGF is 'embossing' and I totally had a couple of embossing folders all picked out and ready to use for my card. In fact I even did one up in a brick wall pattern which led me to choose Thomas from the Creepin' Crew Twisted set because it looked very masculine and he was a good fit. But as I was coloring Thomas up and thinking about how I would put the card together I kept getting drawn back to my stash of patterned paper. At first I was just thinking about how I could incorporate it in with the embossed background but once I found this car paper I couldn't help but go in an entirely different direction. So the brick wall was abandoned and Thomas, who in my opinion kinda looks like a little Bruno Mars mini-me, got a cool hot rod instead, LOL! To make my card still work for the challenge I ended up using white embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment on that dark background. What can I say? I'm just a pattern paper junkie. ;)

Ok, I'm off to another fun filled work day.
Later gators!
