Challenge Card: Heat Emboss Bleached Rose

Earlier I showed you how I use bleach to remove the color from stamped images that have been head embossed (see tutorial here). Today I'm showing you the card that I made with the Pink Pirouette image (the second shade of paper in the picture above).
I used a lot of distressing techniques on this card to give it a shabby look, but who says shabby can't also have bling? I used shimmering embossing powder when I embossed the rose, and I enhanced that with extra glitter on some of the petals.

Here is a close up of the glitter that I used on some of the petals. Here is a side angle of the card. A closer look at the sentiment: "thinking of you"

Another side angle of the card.

One last look.

Thanks for stopping bye!
