The white embossing really stands out. I like the way you've brought the star into the main panel that picks up those beautiful textured stars in the background. Thank you for joining us at Retro Rubber for our inspiration challenge.

This is awesome! I love embossing folders and this gold starry panel is to die for, really makes the smaller panel with the text pop! Thanks for playing along with us at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT
