Embossed Card - Paper Party Crop at CardMakers

From August 11-14 there was a Paper Party Crop over at the CardMakers swap and message board. The theme for the crop was birthdays. Each day different challenges were posted as well as some fun games to participate in. All participants have till midnight August 17th to post their creations for the different challenges to be able to be in the random drawing for prizes. Although my busy week and oral surgery prevented me from being able to participate as much as I would have like to, I looked forward to every day to see what challenges and games were posted. I have enjoyed seeing every one's takes on the different challenges. I'm entering this card in the "Go Bossy On Your Birthday" challenge which is to make a card using any type of embossing.

I used two different Cuttlebug embossing folders for dry embossing. My sentiment is by Impression Obsession which I used embossing powder and heat embossed it. I'm hoping to get a couple more challenges completed before the deadline. Hope you will take some time to check out the challenges and see every one's creation over at the Paper Party Crop. They are very inspiring!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
