Use an Embossing Folder for Back to Basics and Beyond Challenge!

Hello again, back sooner than I thought I would be, and apologies to Carole and the team at BBB as I forgot to post my card to Carol this time around. I think being away has confused me a bit with the dates.
Anyways, here I am now with my card for the challenge of using an Embossing Folder.
Well as you can see it was a bummer to photograph.  I've used this lovely EF from John Next Door, on to black card and then polished u with Pebeo Silver Gilding Wax and Derwent  Metallic Pencils. Silver mirri and Midnight Blue CE card. Very simple but effective I think.

So do play along and join in the challenge, we would love to see what you create. You can find the challenge blog here. You will also find the lovely inspirational cards from the other Design Team members.
Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my last card, I'll say cheerio for now and see you soon,

This must look fabulous in person, Kate! Metallics and shiny elements are always so difficult to photograph, but I can certainly see the shine in yours! Amazing! hugs, de
