FBW187 Embossing!

For some reason, I wound up with a similar color scheme today as I did with last week! And, I used the same stamp set! I felt so guilty that this beautiful SU set -- Precious Butterflies -- wasn't getting any love at all!

This week our challenge at Flutter By Wednesday is to use any kind of embossing. Well, I had to use both wet and dry embossing...why not, right? My embossing tool hadn't been used in a while, so "it" was happy to accommodate! I used an old lilac from Stampin' Up for the flourish, a purple glitter embossing powder from Judykins, and a dry embossing template from Cuttlebug for the edge of the Elegant Eggplant (a little harder to see)!

If you would like to join us this week, please feel free to do so! You can upload your cards HERE! Thank you for stopping by today!
