I've not put my embossing folders to use much lately so this was the reason behind today's  card.
I randomly coloured the embossing folder with spiced marmalade and mustard seed distress ink before embossing the card. I went over parts with the mustard seed and dabbed on a few spots of red acrylic ink.

I coloured the edges of the  raspberry road paper and embossed card with vintage photo added a strip of lace and stuck to the card base.
The image was in line with the Shabby Tea Room theme 'Reading'. I stuck it onto chipboard and edged with vintage photo.
I cut the flower swirl out of pink card to match the pattern in the paper using MD LR0248. The orange flower was from LR0130 and the leaves from
LR0156. I added a gem in the middle of the flower, some bought flowers and leaves and gold rhinestones. The sentiment was printed from a computer and edged in vintage photo.

I am entering it in the Shabby Tea Room Challenge 'Reading'
