If I Had A Penny

Hello.  Welcome.  I was waiting for paint to dry and this embossed panel caught my eye.  I decided it would make a lovely simple Mothers Day card and also get a UFO (un-finished object) off my desk LOL.  



This is Couture Creations Butterfly Hugs embossing folder.  I used the de-bossed side and coloured with Scattered Straw distress ink.  By using the debossed side the ink colours the background and leaves the image white.  I think it gives a more subtle look.  I mounted on a gold base card and added a Unity sentiment layered on the same gold card.
