Scrap it Saturday - Fun with embossing and a giveaway

Hello Everyone.
Join me for Scrapping on Saturday.
Let's explore techniques, software on scrapping and make papercrafting items.
Today I decided to do some embossing!
I love embossing! Something about seeing the powder change when a heat gun is applied really appeals to me and is so fun to watch.
The card for today

The cardstock is bazzill cocoa. The pattern paper is K&Company ancestry stack. envelope is bazill which fits 5 x 7 card. The base card is cut 4 & 3/4" X 12" to fold to 4 3/4" x 6 and the pattern paper is cut 1/4 inch lesser. I kept all the remaining pieces and reused then for envelope flap and punching flowers etc. Punch for envelope is MS punch. I used spell binder shapebilities to cut the doily and stamped with versamark using MS doily stamp. The nestability/shapebility I used was floral motif. Though the design was cute since it is not a nestability I got quite a bit of jump between 2 layers and had to use a scallop nestability for another layer . You can see the pink shimmer dcwv cardstock. The embossing powder is zing copper. The sentiment on the inside is from paper trey inc. I used a ribbon  I had got from HL. I distressed the edges of the pattern paper using Tim holtz distresser and inked using dew drop rich cocoa.
Here is the video. (I am uploading it and it might not appear immediately)

I would so love it if you join me and make a card or layout of using embossing and post it in the linky below.
Now for the giveaway. Tomorrow is my birthday and so  what better way to celebrate than a giveaway? I will be giving away a nestability

 & a Martha Stewart Doily stamp

to one lucky winner. To win you must be a follower as I would like to see the blog grow) and also leave a comment in this post.
