Crafty Ann's #45 Embossing and/or de-bossing

Time for a new challenge at CACB and this week we want to see embossing and /or de-bossing on your cards. Here is my card:

Using one of the images from the Love is all around sheet I've put the topper together in Publisher using the pink Embossed Hearts backing paper (available from Crafty Ann). I've used Mutlu font for the monograms. The card base is ivory stardream and this has been embossed with a Glitter Girls board. Card is finished with peel off flowers, pearls, hearts and a flower bow.

Do pop over and see what the other Design Team girls have created this week, I'm sure they'll delight you.
