Wanna Sketch #8 & Simon Says...Emboss It

I made this card weeks ago using this sketch over at Dahlhouse Designs and totally forgot about it until I stumbled upon it last night.  I loved the simplicity of the sketch, so I wanted to keep my card simple.    To create the overlapping butterflies, I used the same technique that the incredible Jess Witty used on this card.  My favorite thing about the whole card might be the texture created by PTI's Linen & Canvas Impression Plate, though.  It's for sure my favorite IP.  ETA: Since the embossing was my favorite part of this card (and with Leigh's tip :) ), I decided this would be a great card to link up for the Simon Says....Emboss It Challenge.  Okay, I'm off to finish a card for my niece's birthday.  I'm struggling with it...can't quite get it to look how I want.  Wish me luck. :)
