Cuttlebug Challenge - Be Inspired #17 - Love

Next up today I needed to make an Anniversary card and the Cuttlebug Challenge fitted the bill perfectly because the theme this week is Love.

Lots of dry embossing on this card……on the background paper, the dark Blue mat, the heart and on the flowers.
There’s also some heat embossing on the mat because I decided to try rubbing a VersaMark pad over the dry embossing, sprinkling it with Gold embossing powder and heating it with a heat gun to highlight the detail.
