I really love using chipboards when I create. You dont need so much embellishments.
Here is a card where I have used chipboard from 2Crafty.
The titel is embossed with gold and the "clock" is also embossed and I have used embossingpowder from Stampedous.
The background is made with a stencil from 13 arts.
I have also used embossing powder on some metallic embellisments.
