EMBOSSING CHALLENGE

The Crafts Meow is the sponsor of a challenge on the Lily Pad Cards blog.  We are to use embossing (dry or heat, or both) for the card.  Here is my card:

I used an embossing folder from Darice and a small flower punch for the dry embossed background.  The Hero Arts butterfly was white embossed on Tim Holtz patterned paper (the same paper was used to punch the flowers).  The Hero Arts sentiment was stamped with Broken China distress ink, which was also sponged around the sentiment and the background layer.  For embellishment, I added a few turquoise gems for a bit of bling.   

The embedded embossing is fun and I love the results. 

TFL!
