Embossed Ellie

This card was inspired by Marion's beautiful card over at the Muse Challenge.  I was rooting through my stamps to find something that would maybe go with Marion's theme when I came across this old cutie from Wild Rose Studio - coloured with watercolour pencils.

I also loved Marion's idea of embossing in the BG of the image panel - I used a super old mini Ellison Design embossing folder.  I love the finished effect, I'll definitely be using this technique again :)
