Here's another card for this month's Hero Arts contest, this one using dry embossing and a bit of bling. The Etched Flowers is on loan from my friend Carol. I stamped it on a tone-on-tone flourish pattern, and also on music paper, then colored in the leaves and paper-pieced the flowers. Since dry embossing is one of the things that are required this month, I decided to emboss the whole card (except the sentiment). Irl, the texture is very striking, and makes for a different look.
I have always loved this rich tan with darker red and green for Christmas.....kind of antique-y looking, don't you think?
This is stunning I love the idea of embossing all of the background it looks so effective. Love the rose. Caroline xxx

I DO love this vintagey look - you are so good at this with the music in the bg! I adore that new folder too! XOXO
Hi, Lin! You must have posted at the same time I did. We both used the same stamp - love your rendition of these beautiful roses. And, the dry embossing over the whole card is something I am going to case one of these days!
This is gorgeous Lin.
A really gorgeous Christmas card. I love the all over embossing with the paper pieced embossed roses. Great colours and design
When decorating for Christmas, I tend to lean toward the darker reds and greens too, Lin - love them with the tan! Such gorgeous flowers, and love all that fabulous embossing! :)
I do like all the texture from the embossing Lin and the red is so rich, perfect for the holidays.
