Emerald Anniversary (3)

Hi Everyone,
This is the 3rd in my series of 3 emerald anniversary cards which were made for friends Anita & Mickey, This one is from myself, so I wanted to try something different, and this is very different from anything I've previously made.
The background embossing was made using another 1 of the Glitter Girl's embossing boards, then the segments were trimmed using gold fine line border peel offs to enhance it.
This card was particularly good for using up lots of little bits of scraps etc.
Please let me know what you feel about the card- hubby doesn't like it and says it 'too busy/fussy'
All I know, is it took me ages to make, but the jury's out on this one!!
I welcome all comments.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
1) Allsorts challenge 58- use any form of embossing

Later this afternoon, I have a dental appointment to remove a wobbly tooth which was recommended by the hospital before I have my surgery. I am not looking forward to it at all!! One good thing though, the receptionist has asked me to bring in any cards I have ready, for the prospect of buying- so something good might come out of this appointment after all!!

Hope you all have a good day.

  1. Hi Trish,
    I've never seen so many Emerald Anniversary cards! Three on the trot, I do love how you've managed to make each one so different from the others.
    Hope everything went well at the dentist, and hope the receptionist appreciated your lovely cards.
    Take Care
    Love Elaine xx

  4. Love the card, Trish. I'm still practising with my Martha Stewart scoreboard but I'm getting better. Is the GG board channelled like the card or have you had to move it around?
    Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog
