Emboss it challenge-Whimsical Designs Reveal

I've been having so much fun designing and creating cards (and among other things) with the silhouette design edition software.. I've learned so much in the last few weeks on all of the magical options you have while using it.. For one, you can import any digital image/stamp to the software, color it, print it and then cut it with the Silhouette Cameo.. "WOWZAH'S!"..
This is one of the first attempts with the digital stamp and the software.. It really is so easy, just gets a little getting used to.. So, us girls over at Whimsical Designs were given a free choice of a digital image from Limited Run's Stamps.. It was a hard choice, since the stamps were all too cute.. I did however try to stick with a semi-simple one and so, chose the FIREFLY..  I decided to create a card and we were asked to use some embossing it.. I had just bought a Tim Holtz Textured Fades Embossing folder set and couldn't wait to use of them, for this card I chose the POSTCARD embossing folder. 

So, here is what I ended up creating:

I really love that embossing folder, plus those firefly's.. their eyes are so cute!!

I have some close ups for you:

After embossing the marquee, I rubbed the top of it with a sanding block, showing off the white cardstock underneath the embossing..

This sentiment is so versatile, I can add any kind of text to the inside of the card to go with the cover..

My cute little firefly and some of the die cut flowers I found at the silhouette online store..

 and for this challenge we have an amazing sponsor:
