Swallowtail

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful day today.  It is cold and going to get rainy/snowy/icy tomorrow, take your pick, that is how our weather is here in Missouri, ever changing!

Today's card was an experiment with heat embossing powders.  While it didn't turn out the way I wanted it too, I hate the idea of throwing away card stock too.  I was bad and forgot to use my embossing buddy so I had some strays on the front of the card, so to "hide" them I used my spritzer tool and added even more dots to the background.  Mission accomplished, can't see my strays at all!  I used this as a get well cards for a fellow demonstrator who just had knee replacement surgery.  You can click on the picture to see the image better.
