Brayer & Embossing

I was going to CASE one of my previous cards when I saw this sketch.  This is close to what I wanted to do anyways, so I decided to join this week's Inkspiration Challenge instead.  Here is the sketch:
This is my card:
After I embossed my cardstock, I inked up my brayer and rolled it lightly over the embossed pattern.  Don't worry about getting it all, because you won't.  And if you try too hard, you're likely going to put ink on the non-embossed parts of the cardstock.  I heat embossed the main image here using clear embossing powder.  I JUST realized that I didn't put any sentiments on the front.  It's fairly obvious it's a wedding card, right???

My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Always Elegant
Ink: Real Red
Papers:  Real Red
Accessories: Finial Press embossing folder, Boho Blossoms punch, Bitty Punch Pack, Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Glimmer Brads, Basic Pearls, Versamark, clear embossing powder

I really must try this technique! Looks fabulous on your card and fits the focal image perfectly! Thanks so much for joining us at Inkspirations this week :)
