Butterfly Card

The challenge this week at the Shabby Tea Room is 'Let's Make An Impression'.
So it is dry embossing or heat embossing.

I have used heat embossing on my card. I embossed the butterflies with clear embossing powder. I then over stamped with same butterfly stamp using the Brilliance Twilight pad and coloured over the top with same pad using Cut-n-Dry foam. I stamped grass using the Brilliance Peacock pad. I then inked round the edges with the same pad. I finally added Distress stickles Rock Candy to the flowers and butterflies.
