Using my pre done topper

I made this topper for a challenge a little while ago, if you back post I'm sure you'll find it quite quickly.
I thought it might make a nice mans card just simply mounted and let it do all the work, but then thought it needed just a little extra. I decided to add some dry embossing down the side of the card , which I rubbed over with some ink - gold for added dimension.

I followed this throughto the inside by following the dry embossing with black sakura glaze on cvream paper , which I think finishes it nicely. I cut around the embossing on the front just to add intrest and I hope it works ok, I like it but what do I know?
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Ooh la la-vintage man
Kaboodle doodle- embossing
quirky crafts-planes, trains and automobiles- hope bikes count too?
