flourishes double embossing challenge

I was moved....for the first time in months to make a few cards. The flourishes blog challenge was to double emboss and although I have seen this done, seen the tutorials before, I have never tried it and wanted to make a card for a friend who we visited this past weekend (after not seeing each other for a YEAR!!! Yep, we only live 3 hrs apart! How sad are we! Kids really get in the way of things sometimes!
Anyways, I made a flourishes card using only sentiments from cherries/peaches set of theirs. I am hoping to be the lucky one who wins....I would really love to get a new set from them partly for free! I don't have a christmas set from them and would really love a few of them. So cross your fingers for me!
I used a cuttlebug folder and a spellbinder label to double emboss (check out splitcoast for a tutorial...or a link from the flourishes blog post)
Although I didn't do much on the inside, I did emboss the sentiment in bronze (as I did on the sentiment on the outside) I thought the quote "true friends grow separtely without growing apart" is perfect for us because although we NEVER talk and rarely see each other...whenever we visit, it is just as if nothing had ever changed or is uncomfortable. Love that. I intend to make our visits much more frequent...especially since my 6 yr old really enjoyed her 3yr old!
I also made a christmas card with the same double emboss technique using papertrey ink stamp set called in the meadow. LOVE THIS SET! Will see many christmas card this year using this set!
