You are Amazing!

Here is another card inspired by the Watercolor for Cardmakers Online Card Class.  I used a technique on this card that I rarely use, heat embossing.  The background swirls are heat embossed,  along with the sentiment.  That makes them really pop!  I love that "you" die cut.  I added a little faux stitching on the edge of the sentiment flag to anchor it down.  I am linking this up to the Case Study blog.  Here's their inspiration card made by one of my favorite artists, Shari Carroll.  I went with bright colors instead of neutrals with this card.
I am also linking up to the Moxie Fab World: Wonderful Words Challenge, where the challenge is to use a word die, and  to the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge- Birthday Bash.  These bright colors are on my card!
Thanks for stopping by!
