FWF Flair Flair Flair

Here is the birthday card I made for my husband Jim. He loves embossing so I embossed leaves on the background with silver EP.  They I rubbed inks onto the surface. I used pale plum, so saffron and old olive.  I used this stamp from the June KOTM. I love that stamp.  I embossed it as well and used the same technique and inks as I did on the background. I added stickles to the sun rays. I also used the new damask embossing folder from Stampin' Up. Wow does that thing emboss deeply. It's quite impressive. (no pun intended) (I'm lying, pun intended!)
