Wedgwood silhouette plate card

Hi folks! Here's a card I made using Joanna Sheen's Silhouette stamp set 'Stepping Out'. I wanted to stamp and emboss the image using white embossing powder which reminded me of the beautiful Wedgwood plates I had admired over the years. So I did... and I went with the plate theme hence all the circles.
I embellished the card with a sheer white ribbon bow, some decorative pins and a punched white flower secured with a white brad.
I would like to take this opportunity to say 'thank you' to my fabulous followers. There are 300 of you now!! :o) Thank you!
Ciao for now!

WOW! This is so soft and beautiful! Thank you for sharing this technique. I wouldn't have thought to use the white embossing powder in this way. This is truly inspiring.
