Sweet pea stampers: embossing

This is my design card for the Sweet pea stampers 'embossing' challenge - wet or dry. I've included some dry embossing achieved with an Embossalicious folder with my eBosser - a snippet piece that was left over from a previous project - it was done with matt silver card which I brushed with peacock feathers distress ink.

I used Ching Chou Kuik's 'silentness' (owl version) digi, colouring with spectrum noir pens. The papers I've used are offcuts from the Far East stack, including the piece behind the embossed panel and the sentiment. Flowers from Hobbycraft.
