The Outlawz Greetings Challenge - My Sentiments Exacty

Hello, Crafty Peoples!
This week, The Outlawz Greetings Challenge is: 
My Sentiments Exactly - Use Your Favorite Sentiment on your project!

This was my first attempt at using the Faux Silk Technique.  I actually covered up more of the purple paper than I intended.  I stamped my image on the tissue paper using Versamark and embossed it with gold embossing powder!  I do like the look of the faux raw silk and must try it on white tissue paper and leave more of it exposed!

I love purple and gold together, so I was very excited to find that I had all the components I need to complete my card.  The image was colored last year and has been in my image stash.  I used one of my new b'day dies to frame here, but the embossed detail is not showing up so well.
I was just delighted when I found this perfect card stock in my paper closet

I used the same stamp that is on my tissue paper for the inside.  I was going to color it, but changed my mind, thus, the color difference between the ribbon and my image.
