A Birthday card with my favourite technique - Heat Embossing

Hey All

Hope you are all doing great... I keep deciding on resolutions of keeping my blog updated and then with my two cute babies around, I fail completing that. Today ,am deciding again and hope to keep up with that.

And now I wanted to share a Birthday card I made recently inspired by the mood board of LULUPU's 3rd Birthday celebration Bash..

I love all techniques of scrapbooking but my fav among them are using Distress inks and Heat Embossing. And i have tried both on this card....

Stopping my story here n showing you the card and the moodboard of LULUPU.

Impressed by so many elements in the mood board, tried incorporating them in the card . 

The Gold Embossed sentiment over Pink  - Pink Background with Golden Embossing 
The Photo frame - The Diecut shape beneath the main sentiment 
Colors of the French Macaroons - Colors of the diecut in the centre 
Tassel Banner - Used ribbons as tassel beneath the flowers (Not so prominent in the photo)

The techniques I have used are Heat Embossing, Distressed the frames with Distress inks and handmade diecut flowers.

Hope you all like it...
