I Love Promarkers DT Card - Embossing

It's challenge time again at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is "Embossing", heat or dry is fine, and there's double the chance to win as we've got two sponsors this time, Marianne and Milk Coffee.
I used a Papermania stamp for my DT card, from a set I bought at the SECC for £2 a couple of years ago, and to my shame this is it's first inking.  I bought it to match the build a rose stamp set that I also have from the same range, and which I've used loads of times, I guess I just never got round to using this one, I kept saying to myself, "Ooh, that's pretty, I must use it sometime.....", then I'd put it back and choose another stamp!  It's been coloured, of course, with Promarkers, I then added some pearls to the floral spray to look a bit gypsophila.
 I used a Docrafts embossing folder that has a blank oval in the middle, perfect for a stamped image, I think it came in a goody bag a while back. I inked it with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and a tiny touch of Shabby Shutters, to highlight the embossing.
The pink backing paper was made by inking with white card with Spun Sugar ink, then stamping the rose stamp all over in the same colour.  I then added a touch of Shabby Shutters to the edges.
The embellish, I added a heat embossed sentiment, done with white powder on kraft, using a Personal Impressions stamp, baker's twine, layered over white satin ribbon, layered over pink organza ribbon, topped with a twine bow, some buttons, and some pearls in assorted sizes.
