Emboss It. I Love It.

I just love the look you get when you take a plain piece of paper and run it through the Cuttlebug.  Oh, and I especially love it when you mix the paper colors and the embossing folders.
This is a 6x5" card.  The base is ivory.  I used a black pinstriped mat to help bring out the colors of the card.  The four colored stripes are from my scraps.  They are each embossed with a different folder. 

 The cream and black polka dot  paper is from the DCWV All Dressed Up stack.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch to cut the bottom of it.  All of the papers are inked with a Colorbox bronze ink pad.

A sheer tan ribbon with three blue rhinestones were added and then finished off with a flower from Recollections.  This can be a card for anyone on any occasion.
