I've been testing using your ornament from above. If you're going to use a dark leather cover, then make a FAT BIG BOLD ornament. The one you posted earlier doesn't work on covers with a lot of structure. The lines are too thin. It does work on a linen cover though.

ETA: I'm going to be hand-drawing these things; as in pen on paper. I doubt my scanner will do SVG. >.<
You'd need a trace tool for that. Inkscape can probably do it, but not all raster programs are able to read SVG. I'd go with a very large JPG.

See below. I've bump mapped / embossed your drawing onto the brown linen cover I scanned yesterday, and applied a tiny amount of orangy highlight, by turning your ornament to black and white, then to orange, removing the part I didn't want highlighted, and then set the layer opacity to something like 5.
