In my thoughts

I've made this card for a friend who lost her dad a year ago today. I wanted an unfussy, plain card so turned to my embossing folders. I rolled the top of a piece of card through so far, then reversed back. Then embossed the bottom of the card with another folder. I embossed a couple of lines to edge the embossed sections, a trick I learned at Ikki's Cuttlebug Cupboard. The top section didn't emboss crisply at the lower edge where I stopped the rollers, so I put the card back in to the folder,  lined up the pattern and hand embossed the shallower embossed bits to deepen them. The sentiment is Hero Arts.
I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
Incy Wincy Designs: clean and simple
Card Cupids Blog: no patterned papers 
Lily Pad Cards: embossing

and just for fun, I've linked my card at Clean and Simple Stamping
