Words for FSC

It's time for another challenge at Fashionable Stamping and this month the theme is 'Words' and for all the details please pop over to the main blog where there is also some fabulous inspiration form the rest of the DT.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Flonzcraft who are offering 1 Lucky Random Winner a $20 spend in their online store.
I've gone for a 4 x 8 card, the background was made with embossing paste through a Tim Holtz Flourish Stencil, I then added clear Embossing powder. which was heat set when the paste was dry. I used spray stains in Dried Marigold and Victorian Velvet. My butterfly was cut with the Tim Holtz Duo Butterfly die, I stamped Hero Arts French Script and heat embossed with Bronze EP, a little bit of shading with Victorian Velvet and Evergreen bough and then a rub with Frosted Lace Stickles, there is also a vellum layer. My ticket was stamped with Potting soil Archival along with the main sentiment, but that got the heat embossing treatment with clear powder.
It would be lovely if you could join us for this challenge, but remember we are a stamping challenge and your stamping must follow the current theme of Words.
