Embossing Challenge at Heart 2 Heart

This weeks challenge is Embossing.  You can use either dry embossing or wet embossing or a combination of both if you choose.

I decided to use wet embossing.  I stamped the Tree image from October's stamp of the month "Share the Magic" set using versamark ink, then I sprinkled embossing powder (I believe it is called Stardust.  I have had it so long I no longer have the tag for it.) over the top and heated it with my heat gun.  I took a sponge and some Juniper ink and sponged it all over the tree until it started to pop.  Then I added some Blush ink around the edges using a sponge.
The paper pack I used is last year's Holiday paper called "Jingle".  I added a bit of white organza ribbon and a couple of knotted ties and there you have it.  Oh, don't forget the Clear Sparkle at the top of the tree.
It's a simple card but cute and sparkly.

What a lovely card. Really like the 'soft' colors. And the pink ink added around the stamped image is really nice.
