PTI Make It Monday #101 - Layered Embossing

Today's card is for this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge.  In this week's video Heather Nichols shows how to layer embossing.  Who knew you could do that!  So I dug into my stash and for a person who really doesn't do much embossing I had quite a few colors.  (Black, White, Clear, Gold, Silver & Pink - who knows where the pink came from :)
For the challenge you must use one PTI product.  I just started buying from them, so my collection of stamps and dies is small.  I went with "Funky Florals", which was a free set I got earlier this month.  I used some pastel paper from my scrap bin.  I started off using the white to emboss the petals, then pink and finally the centers with black. The flowers were die cut with circle dies and I just fussy cut out the notches.  I tried using clear powder for the petals, but when I embossed the black ran all over and was just a mess!  The sentiment is also from the set and I stamped it in black and embossed it with clear powder.  I just find it's less of a mess and you don't have to worry about all those bits of powder this way.  It needed  a little something, so I topped it off with a bow I made using the Die-namic Dainty Bows.  Not quite sure if this card really knocks my socks off, but I don't think it's that bad that it needed to go in the trash.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

I took this picture later in the afternoon, so its a little on the dark side.
