2 Challenges, one card

It's time to use our scraps on The Flower Challenge. The problem I had was choosing 
from the scrap pile! So many scraps!

This panel I did with an embossing folder, turned out badly, but I just couldn't toss it.
It was done with a brayer and Wilted Violet Distress Ink, and inked before running it
through the machine. Depending on which side you ink, you're left with a raised pattern.

The gold spray I added blobbed in too many areas, and the only way to save this piece was 
possibly to hide the blobs or cut them away.

I decided to do both, hide the blobs, and cut away a bit of edges.
I used a Poppystamps frame with an Altenew flower, and embossed a sentiment on some 
heat resistant acetate. 

The flower was both stamped and copic colored. 

The outline was stamped with Hero Arts Wet Cement, an ink I use often with copics.

I'm also entering in another favorite card challenge, Just Us Girls.
