Embossing on paper doilies / ctd321 + pcccs121

Hey guys!!

 I know I've  been M.I.A lately. With the holidays and all that craziness I haven't had much crafting time :o( . But, I here now!!!!! With another challenge card.

Today I combined 2 of my favorite challenge blogs. The Color Throwdown and  The Paper Craft Crew both amazing blogs to get your creative mojo going.

A look at my card:

I have to tell ya' this card had a ton of trial and errors ( mostly error) . I wanted to turn the beautiful paper doilies silver & gold so I covered it in versa mark and figured I'd just sprinkle embossing powder, lift & heat seat "easy peasy" right?....WRONG!!! After I put on the embossing powder down I didn't know how to pick it back up. Finally I used my paper piercer to pock through one of the doily holes. Okay... on to the next step: heat set. I held doily up, warmed up my heat gun faced it to my doily.....and.... there goes my doily flying through the air.... LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES... :O).. hold doily down on a flat surface. Okay enough about my "DUH " moments. 

Here are the original sketch and color swatch for my inspiration .

Hope everyone is enjoying their Wednesday!! Happy Stampin'
