 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.
