PSC15: Birthday Embossing Resist

This is my first attempt at doing the  Embossing Resist technique. It took me a couple of times to master the ink blending but I love how the card turned out. Background is from my DCWV Floral stack. I took a piece of old white lace that I had and placed 3 white pearls in the corner to blend with the white Birthday sentiment.
Using my Sizzix and Tim Holtz floral dies, I layered several colors together to make this beautiful little flowerette with a pink ribbon and topped with a blue button to put alittle pop in the corner.
For the Birthday sentiment I used white Bazzill to stamp my sentiment on using white embossing powder. My colors are from my Paintbox Ultimate Inkpad. Once I got the background blended I used the same ink pad with my Dots pansy stamp to make my background design using the darker colors on the pad.
For the inside, I used the same floral paper from the front with a white square trimmed with my Victorian Fishars Paper edgers and added 3 little pearls to finish it off. I hope you like my take on this challenge.
