Hints and Tips
To create the faux embossing on this card I used a retro flower punched out from the same colour of card I used for the background.  If you haven't looked at Mo's Digital Pencil shop, you should take a look Mo Manning's digital drawings are beautiful, heart warming and so well drawn.
