High hopes Challenge - Embossing

Hello still fuming!!!! Nevermind I a sure things will resolve themselves. I made this card for the High hopes challenge. It is embossing. I embossed the sentiment, the main image and the dark backing paper is handmade using embossing resist. I added some pebbles (please ignore the glue drying). I added a button with ribbon to embellish. I added some faux stitching too. I love using these background stamps by high hopes.
My partner fell about ten foot from the top of his van ladder today and has a very sore hand. I hope it is not broken, he is watching Arsenal lose instead of going to casualty. I hope he is not expecting too much TLC that is the last thing on my mind at the moment.
