Manhattan Rose - my first challange card

There is a new Stampin Challange blog - see the link on my side bar, so first time ever I have entered a stamping challange. I used the new manhattan rose embossing folder, after embossing I brayered the reverse side with so saffron and regal red then cut out and layered on very vanilla card.  There is a video on you tube with this technique, just search 'manhattan embossing folder and brayer' and you should find it.  I used the sketch on the challange as my layout, just changed it to horizontal.
Here's my card
Good luck to all the girls on the challange blog, why not have a look at their blog and have a go yourself?
