Diamond Point Card and Eco Papers

 Thought I would have a go at the Diamond Point card which is popular at the moment and after watching Jo Channon on The Craft Store this after-noon she reminded me about the eco/boled papers I made about 5 years ago and have been lying forgotten since.

The only trouble was finding any I wanted to even partially cover up lol.I silver embossed the image from an AALL&CREATE set which was gifted to me from a FB friend-thank you Wendy.
