Black 'n' Gold Elegance

Hands up ... if you know anyone who doesn't just love embossed card?
Especially if it's luxury embossed card ... like, for instance, this gorgeous example of a tapestry effect on gold.
Can you see the sheen ... and don't you just want to stroke it?

I think this pattern is the epitome of elegance and beauty, especially when combined with the black leather effect background card and it speaks to me of afternoon tea, lace tablecloths and crinoline dresses.

Such a sumptious look needed very little embellishment but deserved something special, so out of hiding, came some luxury w...i...d...e black velvet ribbon (kept only for special occasions!) and a couple of fabby gold heart brads.

This will be my (almost late) entry for the CA Challenge where embossing has been the theme this month.
