I dry embossed the background of this card using a Tim Holtz embossing folder, then I used a brayer and put embossing powder on the raised part of the embossing and heated it with a heat gun.  Then I inked it with a distress ink (I am not sure which color I used, it was a lighter brown).  I did not really like the way it looked and I had just gotten an inca gold gold color so I went aheat and rubbed on some gold.  Then I dry embossed the journey word and cut a banner out.  I used distress ink on the journey word and then the entire banner with more around the edges.  I had a die cut sitting on my craft table so I decided to use that to stamp happy birthday (Tim Holtz words) and cut it into a banner too.  I couldn't decide what color distress ink I had used on the journey banner and I believe I picked the wrong one so nothing really matches on this card, but it seems to "go".  It of course looks better IRL than the picture.

Thank you for looking.
