Using the "Dreamweaver #DWLX7026 Chevron" stencil I embossed it onto two different colours of cardstock...
on the darker I spread the "Dreamweaver Metallic Gold Embossing Paste" let dry then added crackle paint...
the DP matt is framed with the "Dreamweaver Metallic Gold Embossing Paste"...
then I decorated with flowers and ribbon...
"You're Amazing" is a Sunshine Design stamp...
