Neglected embossing folders

It's a while since I've used any of my embossing folders (and I do actually have a few ... or more than a few - lol!) So I got out a snowflake folder (think it's docrafts, not sure) and embossed an offcut of linen finish lilac card which I then brushed with stormy sky distress ink (although it doesn't show up as much here as irl). The chipboard shapes were bought from Poundland long ago and were on my workspace to be used instead of putting back into a box. The glittery ribbon is actually purple, although it doesn't look so here. I used a stardream sparkly card blank.
