Make It Monday Challenge - Sympathy card

I finally had time to participate in a Make It Monday challenge again. The challenge this week to was heat emboss. I love the look of embossing but don't use it nearly enough, so it was fun to fire up the old heat gun & play with the embossing powder. I first used Versamark ink with the Backgrounds Basics text stamp & embossed the text using clear embossing powder. The butterfly was stamped with Chai ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder. PTI's silk ribbon was sprayed with glitter mist to give it a little color & shimmer. Love that ribbon! I used the same glimmer mist to spray the whole card when it was completed. It was hard to photograph, but the card has a pretty shimmer to it in real life. Thanks for looking!
