HappiLeighScrappin challenge - embossing

I have exciting news!  I have been accepted onto the Design Team at HappiLeighScrappin!!  I can't tell you how happy I am, and how honored to be a HappiSister.  The team is very talented and I'm grateful for this opportunity.

The challenge this week is embossing.  Dry embossing, heat embossing, embossing with a stencil or creating your own designs.  The card I made is:

And a side view showing the popped up layer:

I used Leigh's Birthday Cake stamp which comes with the sentiment plus a second image of a whole page of candles, to put on the inside of the card  with another sentiment saying these were the candles that wouldn't fit on the cake!  LOL!  The image is colored a pale pink with pink roses, green leaves and a blue/grey for the pearly dots on the icing.  After coloring the flames I added some Stickles for sparkle.

I dry embossed a piece of white cardstock, then brayered pink shimmery Archival Brilliance ink onto the debossed side.  I then popped the cake layer over the cardstock.

The challenge can be found here, you should go look at the cards made by the HappiSisters, and make one yourself!  Join us... it's fun and you could win some great digis!!

Congrats on the team! I love the colors you choose, and could even tell the cake was popped up from the front view.
