Your card is exceptional and immediately caught my eye when zipping through my blog reader this morning! And I'm glad I took the time to watch your video tutorial...excellent idea!! I recently purchased a huge variety of colored embossing powders from an estate sale so this will be the perfect way to use them! Thanks so much Kimberly for the inspiration! Happy WCMD! :) Pam
