Diamond Point and Embossing

 Late one again- I made an anniversary for my Sister and BIL which has now been received so safe to blog-actually she doesn't read my blog---rude!!!

I made another diamond point card using K&C papers from yonks ago,I gold embossed the Rose from Honey Doo Crafts onto a Spellbinders die-cut frame.
