SBS10 Challenge #3, My Challenge, and Blog Candy

I've been sitting on a challenge that was given nearly two weeks ago to me by my Sisterhood group and I've finally finished it. The challenge was to use Hot Pink and Black together and also throw in a little heat embossing. The lovely Lastel gave us this challenge, and I'm so glad she did because she inspired me to ink up a naked stamp and try a technique I haven't used in ages! Thanks Lastel!
I used the Always stamp set from Stampin' Up and the French Flair BG stamp. I embossed the Background in White using the Versamarker to ink up the stamp b/c I didn't want the birds on it. Then on Pink Passion Paper, I inked up my naked bird with Basic Black craft pad and embossed with detail black EP. To make the brackets around the word "everything," I punched out my round tab punch on black cardstock and then moved it slightly to the right and punched it again (side by side) and it created the fun bracket you see here on my card! Cool huh?
I hope I've inspired you today to try an old technique...

let me know you did...
I think some blog candy may be rearing it's pretty little head soon for those of you who take a pic of the card you send & link me up to spread the word!
