It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC71)! This week Cindy Haffner is our challenge host. Cindy is challenging us to embossing. There are a lot of different types of embossing options to choose from, such as heat, stencil, plates, folders, scoring, textured die cuts, and more. In addition, there are many different techniques to combined with embossing. You can also use anything from vellum, clear cardstock, or other textures for your embossed projects. We would love to see what you all create. 

This card is also for SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC275)!  This week is all about Barely Mellow Reds!  Love these colors together!  I am using Flourishes Spring Ephemerals.  I rocked and roll the bleeding heart image using pure poppy and mellow moss. I sponged the edge with some ranger straw distressing ink.  I layered assorted patterns of Webster's Pages dp for the background.  After I adhered all the layers to the barely banana cardstock and sponged the edges, I then ran it through the bigshot using a SU texturz plate.  I love the combination of the varying patterns with the same texture.  For the dessert option with the CC275 challenge I added small gold pearls to the scalloped rectangle frame.  I finished with some champagne net wire ribbon!  LOVE this stuff!  I top the center of my bow with a gold button.  I did add a couple of tiny butterflies.  I could not decide on a sentiment.  I left the card as is for now1 

Check out the other blog team designers to see what they created with the embossing challenge!
