For this card, I let the sentiment and the beautiful shimmery paper be the focus. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder before cutting/embossing with Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two. The main panel is the beautiful shimmery paper from MFP which was embossed with Sizzix Thank You Set 5 matted with gold card stock. I took another panel of that gold and embossed it with Textile Texture folder and adhered it where the plain panel was left. I popped up the sentiment panel with foam squares. I added a small gold ribbon bow for the finishing touch.
