Sugar Bowl challenge - Embossing

Hubby is still asleep on the sofa still not very well so using my time wisely ;o) and spending a quick hour up here in my craft room.  This card I've made for the Sugar Bowl challenge - embossing.  Must admit to not using any of my cuttlebog embossing folders for absolute ages so a good challenge!!!   All the papers are by Prima Jack & Jill, and I have distressed the edges with a pair of scissors and inked them with Vintage Photo.  The light green paper has been embossed with a cuttlebug folder Diamonds and lightly inked with Vintage Photo.  My Sugar Nellie stamp Demure has been coloured in with Distress Ink Re-inkers- thought I would give them a try and I must admit I like them better than the distress pads - the colours are much more intense.  I have used my Marianne diecuts for the flourish, added some diamantes, a little bit of ribbon (distressed with Walnut Stain as it was too red) and here it is.

Well, hopefully I can get my next card blogged before the patient wakes up!

Thanks for looking
