Fab'n'Funky Challenge #115 - Emboss It

What a great variety of cards to celebrate Easter last week.  You've all outdone yourselves!  To see if you have been drawn as our lucky winner, check out the Fab'n'Funky Challenges blog.  Don't forget to grab your winner's badge too.

Now onto this week's challenge and we are sponsored by Stamp Fairy and Pink Cat Studio.  The lovely Emma is our host and she has chosen...

Emboss It
I love all things embossed and have incorporated traditional paper embossing and heat embossing onto my card.

I've admired Krista Smith's Saturated Canary images for a while and have seen so many great cards featuring them, I thought it was about time I bought some and gave it a go myself!  This is Nevaeh and isn't she gorgeous.  A delight to colour too.  I used the following Promarkers to colour her:

Face and skin
Dusky Pink
Artic Blue
Dress, socks and shoes
Cool Grey 4

The sunflower background is actually a printed vellum and I attached this with brads.  It hasn't shown up in the picture but two are black and two are grey.  I embossed the black pearlised card with my Provocraft D'vine Swirls embossing folder run through my Cuttlebug, rounding the corners with my X-Cut corner punch. 

The silver paper was from Create and Craft and I picked it because it wasn't super shiny.  I cut the sentiment and image using Spellbinders Labels Twenty with my Grand Calibur.  The sentiment is from Kanban and I inked it with Versamark, then embossed in fine detail black embossing powder with my Dovecraft heat tool.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenge:
