What a lovely challenge this week, over at Glitter n Sparkle...
"Use embossing - dry / heat "

I chose dry embossing - I am totally useless at heat embossing
and never seem to get a good finish that I'm happy with....

The lovely image I have used is:
"Lizabeth wild daisies" from Lacy Sunshine.
I found the paper I wanted for the backing first...
she seemed to be a bit of a hipster girl...
and I really liked the backing paper.
I thought it would also work with one of my fave ebossing folders, 
and then I found some ribbon to match perfectly...
It was JUST long enough to fit! 
The sentiment was a freebie from Desert Divas.
I also embossed a simple line around the backing paper
and the edge of the white card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges...

Hippie girl is very pretty. And for sure this backing paper matched the hippie theme perfectly.
