Crafty Ann's Challenge #6 - Embossing

I can't believe that it is Challenge #6 at Crafty Anns Challenge blog. Where has the time gone? This time it is Embossing, it can be either dry or heat or even both if you want. It can also be for any occassion. As usual the prize is for two digi stamps and one backing paper of choice for the lucky winner. This challenge run until 6pm Thursday 28th January. Details how to enter can be found here

Before I give the details of my card I wish to say to Wendy who sadly lost her Dad and Chrissie who lost her Mum that I was sorry to hear your news and I am thinking of you both.

The main card is white. For the topper background card I have sprayed a white tree bark finish card with Cosmic Shimmer - Cosmic Mists. Purple Violet - Midnight Blue and Peacock Green. The Swirls stamped are from Creative Expressions U- Mount. The swirls have been stamped in black archival ink and holographic embossing powder has been used to give it a lovely glittered effect which sadly doesn't show in the photo. The background is also lovely but again the photo doesn't do it justice. The butterfly and flowers were borrowed stamps from a friend so I do not know the name of them I am afraid. They have been embossed with Silver Detail embossing powder and mounted with Pinflair glue to raise them on the card.

Thank you once again Ann for setting these challenges.
