High Hopes Challenge 29

I wanted to post this earlier but the internet was down and then we had family over so this is the first I could post my challenge card for this week. This week the high hopes challenge is to use heat embossing and is brought to us by Ying. My card did not come out how I wanted so I can't say that I am completely happy with it. I guess that happens though. I originally had something else planned but it just did not work so this card was plan B.

I colored the flower with copics then pressed my versamark dazzle pad over the top and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I love the dazzle pad because it gives a subtle sparkle to it. I added liquid pearls to the center of the scallops. I popped the image up on pop dots using Paper Temptress cryogen white as the base and layering that on Fairway metallic. The whole metallic line is 25% off this month at Paper Temptress.

stamps- high hopes large open flower
CS- Paper Temptress cryogen white, fairway metallic, SU groovy guava, dp
copics- R00, R02, G21, G24
accessories- versamark dazzle, ivory satin ribbon, circle nesties, liquid pearls, scallop corner punch, pearls, clear embossing powder
