Stamp Something meets ABC

That usual refrain hit me when I got home..."Mum, I need a card for tomorrow and I want one that looks like this one" my daughter said picking out the one card in my collection that took hours to make because of all the hand sewing with gold thread. Okay, she's not having that one! (I like to stroke it now and again). But I love using the layout, so I'll gladly make her something similar. Hence this card was born.

Luckily it fits 2 challenges this week.
Over at Stamp Something the challenge is "Something with your favourite layout or sketch" - check
and at the ABC Challenge it is "E is for embossing". Well, I've heat embossed the silver flower with silver Tinsel embossing powder; hope it shows up in this close-up.
The inside was left really plain and I shot this photo before I added the birthday sentiment.
Items Used:
Bearly Mine papers, purple card and silver paper
Lace, ribbon, flowers and gems from my stash
See D's rose, Papermaina Happy Birthday sentiment
Woodware leaf punch
Silver Tinsel Embossing Powder
Purple ink

Thanks for looking.
