Birthday Card for Sister

Good Morning!

To enter my prize giveaway, please click HERE

Today I would like to show you a card that I made for my sister's birthday.  She lives in Tennessee in an area that has bears!  Yikes!  I always worry that when she is out on one of her rambling walks she will encounter a bear.  She just takes it all in stride, no big deal.

This is three Lori Whitlock cards put together, I took the apples from one card and the sentiment surround from another and made this card.  

The sentiment is from a stamp set from my stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Friends Challenge - #65 Birthdays 2 wk

    In response to your question on my blog about the embossing paste, yes, the cardstock did warp a lot...almost to the point where I considered not using the paper. I had to use a strong adhesive (tombow xtreme) and I also added an extra layer of cs to the card front to control the warping. The watercolor paper still warped some with the paste, but once it was dry, I laid a heavy book on it and it flattened out quite well. I still used the Tombow Xtreme adhesive with the watercolor paper.
