Strength and Hope- Two Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers!
I wanted to create a card with the new stamp set, Strength and Hope (available in April) and decided to use two challenges-

 the SSC196 sketch from Stamping 411(http://www.stamping411.blogspot.com 
and the colors from this week’s  ColourQ CQC78 (http://colourq.blogspot.com/ ). 


 The Design Teams from both sites have truly outdone themselves, if you have time, check them out!
 To create this card:
Stamp the Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel with Early Espresso ink and roll onto Whisper White.  Color with SU! Watercolor pencils and sponge Crumb Cake and Early Espresso ink to tone down the Whisper White.  Stamp the butterfly with Early Espresso ink onto Whisper White and color with the Pink Pirouette marker.  Use 2-Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds to highlight the butterfly wings, punch the border with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch. 
Use the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper EF to emboss the Certainly Celery background and sponge Early Espresso ink over the embossed areas. Add the 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon and mount onto Early Espresso.  
Stamp the sentiment and punch out with the Modern Label Punch.  Add the pearls and mount the butterfly with Dimensionals to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets:  Strength and Hope, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel
Ink:  Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Cardstock: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Early Espresso
Accessories:  Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper EF, Sponge Daubers, Pearls, Dazzling Diamonds, 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon, Pinking Hearts Border and Modern Label Punch, SU! Pink Pirouette Marker
Thank you for visiting me today- I hope all of you have a wonderful week!

Above your sympathy card of March 29 th there is a photo of some kind of embossing. Could you tell me what it is exactly. I pressed on the photo but there is no info.
