Embossing Challenge

I love making cards that are unique.  I saw a design for a flower pot card on and I just had to jump with it.  I made a 6x4 card and added a pretty patterned paper to it then arranged my leaves that I punched out with Stampin' up's "blossom petals builder" punch (121808 in their 2011-2012 idea book and catalog) that my MIL gave me.  then using my silhouette I cut out the flowers and flower pot pieces.  I then mounted the rim of the flower pot on blue card stock and trimmed it so that It had a pretty boarder.  Oh before gluing it down I inked all the pieces of the flower pot.  then I inked a craft stick to look like a stem and punched a hole out of one end then put the brad through the flower and into the stem so it stays together.  I then stamped a butterfly on the pot and heat embossed it with a pink glaze.  it's a little hard to see in a picture and next time i'll use pink powder instead of glaze.  but I still think it's really cute.
