SSS Wednesday Challenge / Fusion Challenge

I have loved this background from Hero Arts ever since it came out but only recently bought it. To try it out I heat embossed it in white and sponged the background with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. Then I added a shimmery butterfly die cut on top of a vellum solid one and the saying.

Stamps: Hero Arts (Leafy Vine background, sentiment)
Dies: Memory Box (butterfly)

This card goes to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Thinking of you" and the Fusion challenge "Embossed Ombre" (I was inspired by that gorgeous cake but didn't use the sketch).

ETA: My friend Sarah from Funky Fossil Designs suggested that I link this card also to the A2Z Scrapbooking Supplies for their "Anything Goes" challenge! Thanks Sarah! Hope they don't consider that as backlinking...

Hope you are all having a fantastic week,
Susanne

ETA: This card won Honorable Mention at the Fusion Challenge! Woohoo!
