Pile It On! Challenge - 3D Embellishments

We have another fun Pile It On! Challenge starting today...and the theme is:

'3D Embellishments'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Freckled Fawn
Prize - $15 Gift Certificate!

I'm not really one for adding 3D elements to my cards...I much prefer to keep things simple...and flat for cheap postage! So, although I've added some 3D lettering to my card it's still very simple and almost flat. I found some Bazzill Bare Basics chipboard letters, gave them a generous coating of Versamark Ink and some 'Turkish Nights' embossing glitter from's a really pretty mix of pink & gold. I was going to use some backing paper behind the letters, but decided it was too much, so settled for a piece of maroon coloured card instead.

Here are the challenges I've piled on:
