Simply classic

I used the hard-mounted rubber Raspberry Vine Bookmark stamp by Magenta to make this CAS card:

I dry-embossed the flowery branches with a Cuttlebug border texture folder. The sentiment is from a Lili of the Valley stamp, and is cut out with a Spellbinders die.

This is my first time using my long-desired orange/Carnelian PEARLustre Embossing Powder from Stampendous ... I colored in the stamp with various markers I have ... I can't use my Copics with colored embossing. It was difficult getting a good photo of this, so here's a scan of the heat-embossed piece:
