Vintage look

This is a style I often go back to - I like the crisp look of a dark color and white, with embossing.  I think you can see the hearts from the Sizzix EF.  Not so sure you can see the embossing on theouter circle - from the Spellbinders Majestic Elements.  Some of the circles cut and emboss, others emboss only.  I keep experimenting.  This time I cut the appropriate circle in purple cs, then placed it so that it would emboss the design on the mat.  Yeah!  the size was just right - wish the embossing would show better on the screen.
The image is a pre-colored freebie - I think the site is called antique images.  The sentiment could be used for different occasions, indluding a birthday.
For a friend:
New (this is a fairly new to me image):
