Copper and Blue Medallion Anniversary

This is the card I made for my hubby last year for our anniversary. I wanted to use my set of Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen stamps and decided to use them in conjunction with my mica powders.

The medallion stamp from the Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen Venaissance stamp set was stamped onto brown card using ColorBox Topaz pigment ink and embossed using Heat It Up! copper embossing powder. The image was then coloured using Stamps Away mica powders. They don't really show up in the picture, but I also think that maybe I need to use more of them rather than being quite so stingy with them!!! The image was matted onto blue card and copper mirror card.

A strip of the brown card was matted onto the blue and copper card and three small copper eyelets were set (rather lopsidedly!!) in the strip of card. This was then matted across a panel of the blue flourish paper from the LLB Venaissance paper pad, which in turn was matted onto the copper mirror card and onto the card blank.
The sentiment, from Stamps Away, was stamped onto the brown card using the Topaz ink and copper embossed. This was cut out in a label shape using the HOTP Labels template and matted onto the blue and copper card.

I will be entering this card into a few blog challenges:

Wow, this is totally gorgeous. What a fantastic stamp and I love the color combo with the copper and the blue DP. I see all these comments about a men's card, but I think it would be beautiful for a woman too - so classically elegant! You rocked the embossing challenge! So happy you could join in the fun with us this fortnight at Fairy Fun Friday.
