Seize the Birthday July 30, Embossing of any kind

July is coming to an end and we have another challenge up on the 
We also have a TOPPING if you would like to participate with that challenge.
The Topping this time is to have any kind of embossing on your card!
I have a one layer card that I masked with a circle, then stamped some starbursts (actually the center of flowers from the PTI Funky Florals stamp set. and after they were stamped I went back in with a little distress ink (antique linen).  I did add some sequins and a twine at the top.  Can you see my embossing folder?  After I stamped everything I ran it through with the Sizzix EF that has flowers all over it.  It looks pretty cool in real life!
or you can make any kind of birthday card you would like!
We look forward to seeing your cards in the gallery!
