ODBDSLC260 Double Emboss It

Hello!  This week's challenge is at ODBD is to Double Emboss It!  I used both heat and dry embossing on this card.  The bottom white layer was first embossed using the Boho Background Die.  Instead of using is as a die, I just use the tan embossing plates and running it through my Big Shot to get a wonderful embossed background.  I then trimmed it using the pierced rectangle die from the Flourished Star Pattern set.  The blue green layer was done by using the Belle Vignes stamp and resist embossing with distress inks.  I kept my theme of blue in one corner and green in the other on both the matting and the oval tag embossed with the lyrics from the How Sweet The Sound set.  The tag was made with a Stitched Oval die and a hole punch.
