Less Is More - One Layer In The Frame

I've been trawling the net looking for ideas for this weeks challenge at Less Is More which is One Layer Card In The Frame & came across a couple of tutorials on Youtube for the embossing folder resist technique.

I really like the effect of the embossing around the edge which has been done with the new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Just Believe set from Stampin' Up! stamped in Rose Red Classic ink which I've centered using my Stamp-a-ma-jig.

I've finished off with three flowers punched with the Boho Blossom punch in Rose Red & So Saffron with tiny pearl beads at the centre.
