 This weeks challenge at Shopping our Stash ,the project must contain something embossed- using either heat or dry methods or both. So I made this card. I started with black cardstock and stamped it with versamarker, then used my white Stampinup embossing powder. after embossing with the heat gun I used my pastel markers and colored in the flowers.  I used tim holtz ink to edge the white paper.  for the backing I used Tim Holts magic paper and ran it through my big shot using fantasy flowers embossing folder. I used  a sanding block to bring out the back color on the tim holtz paper,  I then embossed the happy bday salutation on black paper. so I have used dry embosssing and embossing with versamarker, embossing powder and a heat gun. There is a tutorial for this on Splitcoaststampers.

This week's challenge at shopping our stash  is a  countdown- a 3, 2, 1 challenge! Use three of something, two of something and one of something!  so for this week I am entering this card.
I have one large black diamond, two stamped images and three diamonds so I think it meets the requirements. I love this stamp, she looks like me and a lot of my friends.........thanks for looking.
