Embossing With A Difference

Afternoon All.
I hope you are enjoying your weekends, and that it is bright and sunny, just like it is here. It is a good day, even the children are playing nicely with no squabbling - I'm enjoying it while it lasts lol.
Anyhow, I thought I'd share one of the cards my lovely ladies did in my embossing with stitching class this week. The idea came about when I found some tiny flower sequins that matched the shape of the flowers on one of my embossing folders. So I decided that you could prick a hole in the embossed card and add a sequin to each flower, holding it in place by sewing a bead on top - and this is the result - I hope you like it.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
OSAAT - anything goes
