Card sketch and embossing

Here is the sketch from CPS.
If you notice, I made a mistake on the sketch. I had looked at the pattern early in the week, and when I made the card last night I did it from memory. My memory must be slipping, I put the 2 small squares on the left.
I tried out some embossing powders for the flowers on this card. I have never been much into embossing, just because I haven't figured out how to get all the loose powder off. I will say that I had better luck with removing it this time. I used a small paint brush. If you know any tips let me know-

I love this card, what a great effect. Some craft stores sell a little fabric bag that you tap your paper with before you stamp/emboss. That really helps. I also you little brushes to clean up the areas. I find that the dollar store makeup brushes have the perfect range in sizes for this

Your card is lovely! I love that purple!

Rub your paper with a dryer sheet before. Then the powder should only stick to the ink.

I got the brown liquid applique from It comes in a few other colors too, like red, pink, yellow, blue, black and green. At Joanns in the puffy paint section, they usually have a few different colors of liquid applique too.
