Recently Linda uploaded a card I fell in love with and had to case. Linda used vellum with her focal image and lazy bug that I am, I did not. My focal image is colored with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with Gamsol. I then cut it out, flipped it over and placed in on the foam square in the SU Mat Pack and dry embossed using a stylus. I didn't have paper with a raspberry tint so I took Orchid Opulence and Elegant Eggplant and sponged it over the Basic Gray paper that was originally a Ruby Red tint. Here is a link to Linda's gorgeous card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...mp;ppuser=7835
Check out her totally awesome gallery, you'll be totally inspired to get to your stamps and start stamping.

Wow, Jerri! I love your coloring on the raspberries AND the leaves! Stunning! And what a totally different look you got by sponging that designer paper with Orchid and Eggplant! It really glows! I know the dimension is there too. :o) I'm so glad I inspired you, and thanks for the mention. Linda
