Butterfly Challenge

Well, tonight was the first time ever I've tried heat embossing on vallum. I printed a best friend poem onto white paper then put this onto a dark pink butterfly holographic card. This was then put onto the base card. I measured the vellum, glued it on, stamp butterflies on it then heat-embossed...only to realize afterwards that somehow the vellum was shrinking & the base card was bending.

Started again except this time I decided to not put vellum on the card until after I had heat-embossed the butterflies & sentiment.
To complete the card I added a material butterfly with a gem in the middle and finished the corners with pink/purple ribbon.
