Manhatten Flower Embossing Folder

I bought my Big Shot because I wanted to use the dies.  But I've been pleasantly surprised with how much I really like the look you get with the texture plates and the embossing folders.  The Manhatten Flower Embossing Folder is one of my favorites.  The first card I posted that used this folder was showing off the Deboss Resist Technique.  It is a beautiful card, but there was a little work involved with adding the color.  This card is super quick and simple: emboss the flowers, cut them out, paste on the background and emboss the sentiment. I used the Shimmery White Paper for the flowers and the 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon with white trimmed edges.  The sentiment is embossed in white.   

As you can see below, I played around with different colors.  The Rich Razzleberry and the Not Quite Navy look nice but this black card is really elegant.
