Had fun over the past couple of days playing 
with embossing powder and sprays.
This is my card....
One of our neighbours is celebrating their 65th birthday so this is for him.
I started with Wow embossing powders
On the left.....
I used three different  WOW embossing powders and 
noticed that they look different over black so I ended up with four 
different colours.......Yey!!!!
On the right.....
A stencil, embossing paste, several Lindy sprays 
and also embossing powders.

For the thistles I used a stencil and embossing paste, coloured with Lindy Magicals.
The grunge silver hearts have been stamped with Wow stamps and heat embossed.
The sentiment has been die cut, 
out of the Wow embossing from the photo on the left (above).
I loved how the graduated embossing turned out.
The shine and texture in real life is really eye catching.
Had fun with this one and hope my neighbour likes it? x
Thank you so much for finding time to stop by my blog,
I really do appreciate it x
