Flower Garden sympathy

Just had to try out my new Flower Garden embossing folder today!  There have been some complaints about the embossing being on the right side instead of the left side where it is pictured in the catalog, but I must say that doesn't bother me a bit.  I think it is beautiful. 

Here I embossed it first then rubbed over it very gently with a sponge and some Champagne Mist shimmer paint.  I intentionally let the swipe marks show and I like it that way.  Kind of an artistic look I'm hoping for.   
On the inside I used the butterfly stamp from Watercolor Trio as well as a sentiment from Thoughts & Prayers. 

Thanks for stopping by!  That's all I've got for now but hope to be back to stamping again soon. 

SUO Supplies
Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes, Watercolor Trio, Thought & Prayers
