Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 20: emboss it

This is for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 20: emboss it. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in with your embossed designs. This challenge is being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps who kindly supplied the 'Penny paisley 4' image that I used, colouring it digitally in Microsoft Paint. This was mounted on to an offcut of red mirror card.

The embossed card on the left was an offcut of cream pearlescent paper that had been run through my eBosser with an embossalicious folder and bushed with spiced marmalade distress ink. The piece on the right was another offcut, this time a piece of cream card glittered with gold, using another embossalicious folder and brushing the raised embossing with fired brick distress ink.

The sentiment panel is one that I've had for ages and the silk flowers originally came from Create and Craft. I used two small snippets of ribbon that had been saved for 'a rainy day', raising the image panel with foam tape.
