Finally a card in 2011

Finally I got a card made tonight. A few days at work that have had me wondering was I ever on holiday so to get my mind straight I tried a card for the Sugar Nellie Challenge.
There was a sketch to follow with the added twist of embossing. So I thought 'Hey why not try embossing by hand'. Over Christmas I had seen a number of cards on sites that had a criss cross embossing pattern on them. So armed with my Crafters Companion board I had a go. OMG what a mess is all I can say. It looks as if it would be easy!!!!!
Because it is so late and the light was so bad You can't actually tell that I managed a piece about 15cm by 8 cm after an hour!!!!!! SEN group or what?
The image is Sugar Nellie Simple Sassy -coloured using promarkers
DP from FQB at Nitwits.
Sentiment is from pink Gem inked with Ink it Up Cherry Red
Pins and flowers from stash as are the gems.
