Emboss on Emboss Sympathy Card

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 281 - Embosssing on Embossing. Thanks Joan for such a fun challenge. This is also for today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 75 - Dry Embossing. Don't ya love it when challenges work together? My layout is from a couple weeks back OUR CREATIVE CORNER SKETCH CHALLENGE # 22 that I loved but never got around to doing. I used some Basic Gray dp I found and some dark red cs for my base. My white strip in the middle was stamped with the flower image using Momento Cantalope then heat embossed with clear detail ep. The sentiment was stamped with Momento Rhubarb then heat embossed with clear detail. That panel was then ran through the cuttlebug machine using the Victorian embossing folder. I layered some primas topped with a red button with silver cord in a bow. I love how this turned out.
