I don't know what came over me, but get your sun glasses, man. This one is bright!

Oh, and for my last trick, check out that handsome coordinating green edge on the card:
Isn't is amazing how it matches the green ink? heh heh Lacking matching paper, I just did direct-to-paper along the edges of the base with the green ink and dried it with the heat gun. I even like that it's not perfectly smooth. It has character. :) And it didn't even have to be evenly applied, as it got covered up with my top layer.
I went back and added some pearls to fill up the white space (me and white space - meh). I colored them with my Copic YG23, which I declared to be really really really close to the green ink. Um, please ignore the green pearl on the pink circle. I had attempted to disguise my poor stamping, but I think I've just drawn attention to it, instead. Also, it looks like a confused olive.
Hey, this is Hero Arts and it has embossing, so I think it qualifies for the current A Blog Named Hero challenge. Bonus!
In other news, Tropical Storm Leslie is mixing things up in the Caribbean, but unless she turns left, I don't think she'll do much damage. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some embossing powder to clean up.
Thanks for stopping by!
