New Challenge at Stampin for the weekend - Embossing

Good morning folks! Well don't I feel rough as old boots! I have some sort of chesty/throaty thing that is causing me to cough but I'm sure some early nights and and hot drinks will help it (lol early nights!)
On to my card for today and we have a new challenge over at SFTW for another 2 wks and this time the fab Clare has chosen Embossing as our theme! We are sponsored by the wonderful Stamp fairy who have provided us with some adorable images to use.
I have used Wild rose studio spring fling papers that I have had for ages (ooo look at me using up some stash!) and don't they just give you the brightest spring feeling?! I love an orange and lime combo!
I have embossed the paper under my image with a butterfly embossing plate and then inked over in spiced marmalade. My flowers are WOC, Prima and mulberry crafts. My gem flourish (lovin these at the mo!) is from Sarah's, my sentiment is SU and my ribbon, cheesecloth and button are from stash.
My sweet molly image has been coloured with Prismas and is available HERE. I also gave my button a little embossing treatment as I didn't have one in the colour I wanted so I took a white one inked it in green and heated clear embossing powder over it and volia! A little tip I picked up off of Top tip tues and so useful! You can even see the button sides are still a bit white!
I would like to enter this card into Pollycraft warm it up, Truly scrumptious something forgotten (my papers),  My mums craft shop flowers,  Whimsy pearls or bling, Pennys paper crafty ribbons and buttons, Paper shelter pearls and swirls (there is a pearl in the middle of my prima flower), MAWTT blooming marvelous and Cute card Thurs you're a gem.

HI Rebekah, sorry you're not well, you should get yourself some Codeïne, that will stop the urge to cough. Sometimes your throat is just over irritated and you get into this vicious circle and then the cough just doesn't stop. Anyhow, love your card, such a lovely happy colour you used! Have a great weekend, hugs Frea
