Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone!
I hope you're having a wonderful day!
I will be on vacation starting tomorrow and all of next week...yay! Looking forward to the hot sunny temps and sandy beaches!  I do have a few posts that are scheduled while I am away if all goes well.  I won't have much time on the internet, if any, but will catch up as soon as I return~

Today, I am sharing a pretty card that I made experimenting with some different products again. It is fun trying different techniques and challenging yourself to go outside the box a little, lol! I have to say it is messy but it is cool to see the end results. 
I really had a hard time taking a picture because of the glare, ugh! It really is pretty with the sparkle and shine~promise!
I started with a layer of gesso and then using texture paste along with the honey comb embossing folder created a background of texture. I would definitely go heavier on that next time~ I  used Tim Holtz distressed inks, weathered wood and Spun Sugar for the background and around the edges. I sprinkled on Shabby Blue embossing enamel (by the way, I love this product) and heat embossed. 
I die cut layers of rings with the Memory Box Small Ringlets which were dipped in Pearl embossing powder and then heat set.
The flowers are from Jaded Blossom's~Roses stamp set which were embossed, fussy cut out and layered in place. The butterfly is from Jaded Blossoms~Spring Dies 2 which I embossed in the Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel. I did the same with the thanks which is wooden piece I had in my stash.
I finished with a pretty bow using Silvery Hue Sea ribbon from DL.ART and jute string from My Craft Spot. I added a little button using the Die Versions~Wee Petites and added the Shabby Blue embossing enamel to that as well. I want to emboss everything, love this stuff... hehe!
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Jaded Blossom~February Challenge~Flowers
2.) DL.ART February Linky Anything Goes
3.) Scrapy Land Challenge #36 Tie one on (include a bow-die cut or ribbon)
