The Kitchen Sink Stamps 10 Minute Card Challenge today requires that you use only white card stock dry embossing both the card front and the second layer. On the third white layer add the Kitchen Sink image and sentiment of your choice. Use keyword 10MC19 and add your entry to the Kitchen Sink Gallery to share with KSS fans!

  8. Such pretty cards. Love the texture from the embossing. Of course as a schoolie the apple card is my favourite. I used to have a student who every so often would bring me a perfect apple with a little tag attached - Mrs Short's Bribe. It never changed anything but it did make me laugh.
