This card was made using a pre embossed blank, I have no idea who makes it or where I got it!
The central embossed panel dictated the size of the panel so I chose a recycled image to fit inside and matted it on gold and red cards to add definition. The scanner as usual hasn't picked the gold up well though :(
The sentiment is again from an old card. The flowers and gem are from the Brenda Pinnick QVC kit I had recently. The ribbon along the bottom is from Dovecraft.
I did consider chalking the embossing to bring out the design but was worried that I would ruin it so decided against it !
