Fancy Embossed Card

I have quite a few lovely embossing panels to use with my Bigshot.
The problem I have is using them.  I seem to have a mental block and only use them to decorate layers under toppers.
Need to think out of the box more with these and always on the look out for ideas.

I tried a layering idea on this card.  Using one of my embossing panels on cream card, I used that as a kind of backing paper

I then used a subtle coloured paper and got to use one of the Spellbinder Border cutting dies (something else Im not very creative with).I then used an embossed strip of ribbon on the top edge of this section
The Flower topper was a freebie from a craft mag.

A little different for me, like the affect of the embossing.

I have entered this card into the the following challenges -

Joanna Sheen Layering Challenge
Die Cutting Divas Tic Tac Toe Challenge  - My choice was Flowers,Embossing, Ribbon
