TSOT 158 Perfect Day Card

Hi! I hope your weekend has been great. We had two birthday parties to attend this weekend, and I don't think I can eat another piece of cake again for a while. LOL

I am very excited to share my next card with you. I tried out a technique that I've been wanting to do for some time now. I heat embossed my stamping with white embossing powder and then sponged first in Twilight ink on the top half and sponged Bamboo ink on the bottom half. It really makes the embossed areas pop. I love nature scenes and am so glad that I bought this stamp set before it retired a few years back.
Paper: Florentine (retired), White Daisy CS, Twilight CS (CTMH)
Stamp: Perfect Day (retired) (CTMH)
Inks: Twilight, Bamboo, VersaMark (CTMH)
Tools: Sponges, Heat Gun, White Embossing Powder (CTMH), Embossing Folder (SU!)
Other: Chocolate Embroidery Floss, Glue Dots (CTMH), White Buttons (MFT)

I would like to enter this card into the Try Stampin' On Tuesday Challenge #158. Have a great week, my crafty friends.
