One Cross, Two Looks

I finally took part in a challenge by a fellow FSJ Coach last week.  We had to make a card using both wet and dry embossing.  I made a card and shared it on her FB page but the more I looked at it the less I liked it so this morning I changed it.  I like it much better.

Here's the original card.

I embossed out beautiful Color Cross (Bundle) on Sweet Pear card stock using white embossing powder and Clear Pigment Ink. I layered it on a pierced Oval of Pool Play card stock and added a few Pearls.  I also added a Beauty Bloom.  The Citrus Cooler card stock was embossed with our Beach Towel folder and layered on more Sweet Pear.  I colored the Cross with PanPastels.   The text is just stamped using Black Licorice ink on the Sweet Pear banner.

Here you can see the Beauty Bloom closer.  The Bloom is a Benefit you can get FREE with a $50 order. But I didn't like my coloring of the cross so....

I made another cross using the Sweet Pear card stock and embossed with Black powder.  I removed the Beauty Bloom from the 1st card, adhered this cross over the original and added the Bloom back on. I like this MUCH better.  What do you think?

I really like the 2nd card ... much more striking with the black embossing. THANKS for sharing!
