Embossed daisy

Do you remember the first time you saw someone heat embossing? Wasn't it like magic?  It still feels that way to me.

I stamped the silhouette stamp from SU's Upsy Daisy set in Versamark and embossed with black detail embossing powder on glossy paper. I then sponged on red and pink ink for an ombre effect. I repeated the ombre on the sentiment panel.

I put a pink gem in the corner and added a little piercing.

I'm entering this card in these challenges:
