Maroon Birthday card

I made this card for my dearest hubby a while back.  It just evolved like most of my cards do... I never really have a plan... I work on how things look and feel.. if that makes any sense at all....  The Dream, play love section was done on an old recycled piece of board... I rubbed my versa mark ink pad over it... and layered gold, and bronze embossing powder on it... heat set and whilst still wet added about 5 layers of clear embossing powder... one after the other heating in between... inked up my stamp with black ink and stamped over the melted powder. Unfortunately the scan does not show up all the detail, but it came out really nicely.... the detail on the light brown cardstock was a few random images I stamped to create a collage type background. A matching bit of scrapbook paper to layer & an embossed clock sticker and fibres to finish........ I love to tear paper.. so you'll often see a torn element in my work...
