Great Grandmother Martha Kaiser ~ Practical Scrappers --Embossing

Hi everyone!!  I have a layout for today's Embossing on your Layout Challenge over at Practical Scrappers.  You could use any kind of embossing and so I used some Zing Embossing Powder and a couple of Cuttlebug Embossing Folders.
The photo is of my Great Grandmother on my Dad's side of the family and probably was taken around the time she married my Great Grandfather (1904)  I also added the headstone from her grave.

Here are a few close ups... 

Here you can see Distressed Edges, Doily, Cameo, Spellbinder Foliage Die Cut Leaves, Prima Flower, Lace Ribbon, Prima Say It In Pearls.  It's really hard to see but the mat under the photo is embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder and the circle under the photo of the headstone is embossed with the Cuttlebug Houndstooth Embossing Folder.

More Distressed Edges, Prima Flowers, Spellbinders Foliage Die Cut Leaves, Prima Say It In Pearls, Ribbon Lace, Martha Stewart Spiral Arches Border Punch..

Prima Vine, Glitz-Pretty In Pink Paper Layers, Martha Stewart Swirling Lace Border/Corner Punches, and Prima Say It In Pearls...

Distressed Edges, Martha Stewart Swirling Lace Border/Corner Punched Frame, Embossed Background with the SU Print Pattern Stamp, and Glitz - Pretty In Pink Paper Layers...

Stunning layout Fern, you have put soooooo much detail into it, not to mention all the techniques - Love it. And what a precious photo. Love the idea of using the headstone photo on the layout - I would not have thought of that, and I have a lot of headstone photo's - a result of doing my family tree research - thanks for the inspiration....
