FWF embossed style

So blogger decided to FINALLY WORK!

This is what I made for Unity's FWF, the Unity Place Embossing Challenge, and Clear It Out.
 Close Up:
I used Samantha Walker's Butterfly Garden and Sentiments O' Simple. The yellow layer is Samantha Walker's 1 piece circle frame, a die cut for my Silhouette.   

I inked up the floral image with VersaMark ink, then with Palette Noir before stamping and heat embossing with holographic powder. I then colored the image with Copics and mounted on the white die cut.

I also sewed on this card, but that didn't work so well. My machine decided to try to break, then I ran out of thread on my bobbin, and I couldn't sew straight to save my life... but it works!
