Sparkling Embossed Background

  I tried an experiment to see if I could make my Creative Inspirations Paint background crackle- looks like it did a very teeny bit- but not what I was hoping for. I will keep my fingers crossed that Molly (CI owner) will come out with a crackle version.........!

  I painted the white CS with Beige Creative Inspirations Paint. I ran it through the Cuttlebug using Regal Flourishes (Tim Holtz). I found this sweet image by Crafty Secrets (Birds and Blossoms) and thought immediately of my Mother- I need to send her a card-perfect!  The BG paper is from Paper Temptress- Red Texture (hate to cut into it…but it worked so well with the image).  Finally, I added the Metallic weave ribbon (Martha Stewart) in Gold and Camelia Pink.
Thanks for stopping by!
