Now and then I try and step outside my "comfort zone" and try something new. Embossing isn't new, but for me working with patterned paper kinda is. Using more than one kind of patterned paper is even harder for me! I'm also not usually the type to use paper flowers or buttons without prompting... I finally got over that hurdle with ribbon though.
If I were to do this card again I think I might do the children in white emboss instead of gold. Without the light from the flash on it the gold sort of blends into the patterned paper... on the other hand it does make a neat effect when you hold the card and then the light hits it suddenly POPPING the children out at you.
I used CTMH "Childhood Portrait" and SU "Live Like You Mean It" along with random scraps in various project boxes. I mean I literally opened up Kerowyn's baby book project box and pilfered the ribbon and flowers. It was a late night card hehe.
