This card was on our SU! demonstrators' website this a.m. and I just fell in love with it.  It is really simple but looks like a million bucks.  It was designed by Becky Hay de Garcia, and shows a very easy technique called embossing resist.  You emboss the image in either clear or white, depending on the effect you want - I almost always use clear.  Allow it to cool completely, and then ink up a sponge with a coordinating ink - in this case, pale Bashful Blue.  Pounce the sponge up and down over the embossed images until you get the desired effect.  When you have enough ink, take a piece of paper towel or tissue (not the lotion kind!) and rub all over the design.  This will remove the ink from the areas of embossing ONLY, revealing the design in shimmering glory!
