Tired Bear......

I have been inspired by two challenges to make this card.
I stamped the bear in black ink onto linen card.
I embossed/gilded the edges with gold embossing powder.
The crown has been gold embossed and mica added with a brush.
I tried to use gilding flakes but the crown was too small to make it look effective.
I have gilded underneath the bear with White Frantage shabby embossing enamel.
I do so love Frantage enamels, they give texture and 'surprise' results.
I am entering the card into the following challenges.....

CAS card using Gold, Mica and Frantage
