what the rest of the Design Team has done HERE

I was really surprised how easy this was to put together and thoroughly enjoyed the results. It's on my "let's do it again" list. The tutorial uses CLEAR embossing powder but I threw my T W I S T into by using Gold instead.

1.  Start with a Soft Suede card base.
2.  Cut and attach a Early Espresso panel measuring 5 1/4" x 4".
3.  Cut a whisper white layer 5" x 3 3/4".
4.  Dust the white paper with the Embossing Buddy.
5.  With clear VERSAMARK ink, stamp the flowers from the Mixed Brunch stamp    
     set . 
6.  Sprinkle Gold Embossing powder on the inked images, tap the paper  to 
     remove any excess powder that does not stick to the ink.
7.  Using the Heat Tool , melt the embossing powder onto the paper.
8.  Place the leaf die cut from the Secret Garden framelits in your selected spot 
     on the embossed paper. This becomes your puzzle piece.
9.  Using a sponge with Crumb Cake, Baked Brown Sugar and Soft Suede inks,
     sponge color right over the top of the embossed images with soft swirls of 
     color. I used Early Espresso in the flower centers.
10. Now color your puzzle piece with black ink..I used my Basic Black marker.
11. Attach the embossed panel to the Expresso panel you cut (see#2).
12. Time to glue your puzzle piece back into the large embossed panel.
13. Decorate with Gold Bakers Twine.
