Heat embossing & Dry embossing

Hello!
I hope you all are having a good day. I came here to share a card with you. It was a tricky one. I wanted to incorporate both heat embossing and dry embossing on this card. Being a newbie, i could not manage meeting my expectations, but i tried my best.
I, once again, followed Fusion card sketch this week.
This time Fusion inspiration colors were really soft and dreamy, i had to work REALLY HARD to work on that. And to be honest, I'm not so happy with what I come up with.
I combined both sketch and inspiration colors on this card. I used Stationery noted paper in the background, and then stitched a heat embossed vellum piece on top of the paper. The paper I chose has a ledger print, so worked great for the details I was planning to add. My vellum panel has white embossing, and to give it a lil boost I colored it using mustard seed and picked raspberry distress inks. Spritz some water on that, and let it air dry. Yes, I screwed the stitching part on top left. But I did not want to throw this card away.
If you can see the colored vellum here. And the real stitched lines.
I did not have time to make flowers for this card, so I used store bought flowers this time. I dont remember everyone, but the big flower in the center is by Prima. And its BEAUTIFUL. :)
Let me know what you think of this card. And please don't be so hard on me, pretty please! :D
