Simon Says.......Emboss It!

It's Wednesday - welcome to our challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

 Our theme this week is  "Emboss It!", and the team is showcasing WOW products.  I chose a pretty embossing glitter and used it to add details to my flowers and butterflies.

supplies: white and Surf Blue cardstock, vellum, Altenew Painted Flowers multi-step stamps, 2 lightest shades from Sweet Dreams and Spring Bouquet green mini ink cubes, smallest of the Simon Beautiful Butterflies and sentiment from Spring Bouquets, WOW Calypso embossing glitter, VersaMark ink, Stitched Circle die

I stamped 2 different flowers twice, using clear ink and Calypso glitter to add the 2nd layer details to them.  I also stamped the butterflies on vellum with clear ink and sprinkled on the same glitter.  These were then cut out and arranged around the negative circle panel, adding a tiny stamped flower sprig to the mix.  I stamped my sentiment before lifting the panel above the card base.

Here's another picture to show some of the glitz from the glitter embossing, quite a nice touch without being too overpowering!

Now it's your turn!  We have a $25.00 gift certificate 

to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!  I can't wait to see what you all make this week!
