Two Challenges - One card

Double Dutch challenge is Clear and Simple - and I'm not sure this will count as the only acetate I could find (apart from printable which is too thin) was this solitary piece with squiggles on. Where is my plain acetate - probably still packed in one of the boxes used whilst decorating was taking place.

The Creative Card Crew's challenge is embossing.

I decided to put my image on the inside of the card and frame a hole cut in the front.
The Gorjuss girl2 is coloured with Copics and I have heat embossed the corners and the centers of the flowers which I have fastened to the frame with silicone glue. I have cut a further piece of the turquoise and fastened it to the back of the image (back of the card) for a sentiment. The whole thing was so difficult to photograph, black background worked best and I must admit I rather like this and will probably use it again.

Materials
BC - Acetate ?, turquoise - Core-dinations : Stamps - Suzanne Woolcott Gorjuss girls 2 and Exela crafts corners : Medium Copics : Punches - EK Success retro flower & Leone Em stamen & branch : Rest from stash

Wow!The embossed corners and flowers are beautiful!

By the way,I'm going to answer your question.It takes for about 40 minutes - 1 hour for me to carve a stamp.Of course, it depends on the size of the stamp and complexity of the design.
