Happy Everything

I stamped this earlier for the Technique Twist Double Embossing challenge but wasn't sure how to use it so I put it to one side. I used Stampin Up's Medallion stamp and 3 powders - Heat It Up Copper, Personal Impressions Gold Sparkle and Cosmic Shimmer Bronze Lustre Ultra Thick

And then from a link on Mynnette's blog I found the House Of Cards challenge. This week you have to use this sketch to make a Classic & Elegant card

So I cut my embossed image with a Nestie (which means I have the outside piece to use as a frame) and layered it onto a gold mirror scallop. The embossing is done with a Cuttlebug folder from the Preserves set on cream card then cut into four before layering onto a square of mirror card. The greeting is by Craftwork Cards again layered onto a Mirror card die cut.

Too late for the Technique Twist but I've just squeezed into the House of Cards :)
