I must admit, this was a bit of a "challenge" for me.  I don't think I have mastered the art of using embossing power in all my 20+ years of card-making๐Ÿ˜, although I have 37 different ones.  
Guess I'll just have to practice with them more. ๐Ÿ˜‰  
Thank you PTI for pushing me out of my comfort zone 
to try new-to-me (!) techniques.  
I do like the way this card turned out and will be mailing it out to a very special niece this week๐Ÿ’•

I made this card with an extra flap (with the yellow butterfly and rainbow sentiment) which opens up to the flower embossed panel with the other butterflies like a regular card.  The sentiment for Father's Day love is on the inside like an A2 card.
