Here is what I created for this week's challenge using two of
the 3 Twenty Crafts stamp sets:

 For the life of me I couldn't get this card to scan it's the scan that's lopsided, not the card!  I wanted to play around with using markers on vellum so I based my birthday card around that. I just love the Background Builder set so I started there. I stamped the vellum with Versamark and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I colored in the empty (unembossed) squares using a Q-tip. I just placed on the Q-tip on the end of my Cherry Cobbler SU marker and colored. A little color goes a long way so you don't need a lot. And if you get the color on an embossed worries it wipes off! (I was never good at staying in the lines so this is really good for!) Depending on the look you are trying to achieve and your choice of embossing powder the possibilities are endless. I am seeing an elegant black and white card using this technique in my future. The flowers are popped up to give the card a little dimension.

For my sentiment and the inside of the card I used multiple stamps from the 3 Twenty Crafts Simple Sentiment set.
