CAS Mix Up December, 2018 - Emboss Resist - Lenten Rose

Hi Stampers,
It's the 1st of December and time for a new challenge at CAS Mix Up. Loll is Hostess this month and our challenge is to use Emboss Resist on our cards. This month's challenge will run from 1st December to the 15th so the Design Team has a bit more time for Christmas preparations.

I stamped and embossed the Lenten Rose from Flourishes.  I used Sponge Daubers to colour the Flowers, Leaves and background.  I then decided to use my Mama Elephant Landscape dies to create a Window and stamped the sentiment following the curve.  The white panels are mounted with Foam Tape.
