Argh Eventually!!!!

Well this is take 3 on the Less Is More Card this week.  Number 1 the lace stamp didn't stamp right, number 2 even before I stamped I got a black inky finger print on the top, so phew got there eventually!!!
So this is for a few challenges but let me talk you through what I did first. When I saw the sketch on Less is More I felt drawn to do something masculine but quite dramatic.  Not sure if I pulled it off. Then I decided to do my embellishment to be exactly the same colour as the ink. So the prima flowers (yes 2 paper ones) are inked up and then embossed. The button is coloured with the ink pad too and then embossed 4 times so it is ultra shiney!!!
Hope you like it.
