The Perfect Sentiment: Birthday Challenge!

We have a great challenge for you this week over at The Perfect Sentiment challenge blog!
It is to create a card with a birthday sentiment (on the front, as always). And for the twist: To use the "emboss resist" technique! In case this is a new technique for you, check out THIS easy to follow tutorial from SplitCoastStampers.

Here is the card I came up with using this fun technique:
I decided to take this opportunity to create a masculine card, since I often need birthday cards for men, but don't often think to make them ahead of time. I thought this image would be a fun one to use the technique on.

So check out the tutorial, and get your embossing powder and heat gun ready! I can hardly wait to see what you come up with!
I am donating the prize being offered this week, which consists of the following items:
Marcella By K floral accents with pearls
Pack of flower Clear Stamps
Pack of Stampin' Up! Earth Elements eyelets
Family Treasures Hearts border punch
Tin for altering
Spool of Sweet & Sassy floral grosgrain ribbon
This prize is limited to a U.S. participant only. In the event that our winner is a non- U.S. resident, The Perfect Sentiment will award digital images as a prize substitute.
Be sure to get your card linked up over at The Perfect Sentiment by Tuesday at 10:00PM EST.

and our Guest Designers:
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you'll join us and share your emboss resist birthday card, too!

I'll be doing my blog candy giveaway any day now, so keep checking back.
Please continue to leave your comments- I always love reading them!
Hope you're having a great week!
Wishing you many blessings~
