Double Embossed Metal

It's Evelyn here....trying out the Double Embossed Metal from the Feb/March newsletter.  I ordered four colors of metal after I saw the newsletter; this card uses Plum.  The first embossing was with the Swiss Dots folder, and the second was with SU's Rose folder.   Although I did color some with a purple Sharpie, it doesn't show up very well.  I backed the metal piece with specialty dark purple cardstock from Club Scrap and accented it with some soft purple pearls.
