Resist Emboss Technique Challenge

I made this card in response to the technique challenge at Patty's Stampin' Spot. I don't do cards like this often and to be honest, I'm not so sure how much I like this one, but here it is anyway. I used the Stampin' Up Upsy Daisy set and stamped it with black pigment ink and clear embossed. Then I sponged ink on it (Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun and Cool Caribbean). The sentiment is from the same set, stamped and inked with Not Quite Navy ink and punched with a tag punch. The patterned paper is from a couple of Stampin' Up mini paper packs. The sun is punched from Summer Sun card stock. The sun was my son's idea-I wasn't happy with the card and he thought maybe it needed a sun. It does look better with the sun.
