Sue had an upload for the WT titled Faux Linen, and it reminded me of this technique. As I had found some glossy card last night whilst tidying my desk, I decided to give it a go and made most of this before work this morning.
Tutorial is HERE.
I followed the tutorial, stamping French Script on the base layer, then sanding, then sponging with blues. Stamped the flourish, then the border with forest moss. I added Enamel Accents to the stamped image, and sequins in the corners. Finished it off with a sentiment and white gel pen border, matted it on black and than added it to a white base. It's a tiny bit more greeny-blue than the picture, but it's pretty close!

I will have to try out this faux linen sometime, love the results you achieved here. Perfect choice of stamps and colors for the linen look. What I really like is the subtle peeks of the script in the background and of course, the bling and the enamel accents.
