Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 14 - Embossing

Hi folks!
Wow...what a scorcher this week. Two scoops of 'cooling down' for me please. This week over on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp the theme is embossing. Wet or dry...we don't mind. My poor printer has died :o( but I'm getting a new one on Wednesday :o) luckily I always print off more images than I need so was still able to join in with this weeks challenge.
The papers, butterfly and chipboard heart embellishments are all by K&Co. They are from the Smitten range. I also used a K&Co adhesive rub on with some brown glitter for the sentiment. I cut the aperture using my circle scallop Nestabilities. I coloured Rosabella and Drake with Copic Markers, cut them out and adhered them to the aperture from behind. I then embossed some Vellum with my Fiskars embossing plate and taped that behind Rosabella and Drake covering the whole aperture. I made the doily corner with....a doily ;o) and I finished off the card with some self adhesive pearls around the aperture.
Hope your printer feels better than mine and you can play along with this weeks Dare. Don't forget to hop on by and visit my fellow DT who have all created fabulous cards this week.
Ciao for now!
