Crafty Ann's Challenge #45 - Dry Embossing/Debossing or Both

Embossing is the challenge at Crafty Ann's for the coming fortnight.  I love all the many techniques you can use for embossing and have incorporated a few different ways on this card.
My base card has been dry embossed using a hexagon shape from the Eazi-Box Board.  The corners have been dry embossed with a pattern from the Red Glitter Girls board.  Again using the Eazi-Box Board, I have embossed and cut out the backing mat from Ann's Mottled Stone Collection and cut a smaller version out from the co-ordinating Polished Stone Collection and run it through the Tiny Mosaics Cuttlebug folder.  I have then lightly wiped an embossing pad over the raised design and embossed with gold ep.  A small gold foil circle was embossed with the Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls Embossing folder.
The flower is a pre-coloured 3D long petalled flower, again from Crafty Ann that has been cut out, shaped and glued together using Stewart Gill Byzantia crystals to form the centre of the flower. 
I do hope you will join us in the challenge at Crafty Ann's and look forward to seeing your wonderful creations.
