Metallic Look Paper

Hello crafty friends. I made this card months ago but am just now getting around to posting it. Better late than never, huh?

My sister had double knee replacement surgery. While nothing can actually make that feel better, I thought a card might cheer her up a little. 

I had just watched this video that Jennifer McGuire made in August: 
Faux Textured Metal Paper with Perfect Pearls 

The video shows how to create a cool metallic paper look by use Distress Inks, embossing with embossing folders, then adding Perfect Pearls. The effect is quite nice in person.

I used Seedless Preserves, Milled Lavender, and Salty Ocean Distress Inks and an Anna Griffin embossing folder along with Perfect Pearls (in Perfect Pearl color).

I added some of my Multi layered flowers inked with Seedless Preserves.
I added some seed beads that I had in my stash to the center and finished the card off with some bling.
