Embossed Dragon Fly

Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge for Friday is to pull out those heat guns and heat emboss an image that will create a card conveying SIMPLE ELEGANCE. So, that is just what I did.
Be sure to check out all the other designers who are participating in this challenge. You can find them listed over at Sharon's.

First of all, I used Sharon's card as my starting point and added my own twist to it. Can you see that I have embossed the dragon fly with Silver Embossing Powder? It is hard to get a good picture of silver embossing.
Don't you just love the Dragon Fly? It is in the Gemstone Insects Stamp Set. There are so many things that can be done with it. I love the butterfly too.
Jerri is the queen of embossing and she plans to do an embossing tutorial in the near future. I can't wait!
