Party card

I love embossing! I´ve made my first trembling steps and now I´m ready to emboss everything. The first time I tried the embossing medium just fell off, I hadn´t heated it enough and there I sat with all that fine dust on my trousers wondering what happened!

This card is for three challenges:
Funky Fairies 4 papers, 3 embellishments, 2 diecuts and 1 image
Simon Says Stamp Challenge paper piecing
Friday Sketchers fab layout

Papers: paper with bubbles is from Funky Fairies, I used it for the paper piecing as well, black one an Origami paper, the other two are ordinary crafting papers

Stamps and inks: Panduro, bubble plastic, Memories, Distress Inks

Colouring: Derwent watercolour pens, Sakura pen for accents on the paper piecings

Misc: star diecut is QK, I made the arrow using a scrappiece (Bazzill paper I think), I have stamped the small bubbles with bubble plastic ( I know, there are stamps that give the same pattern) and embossed them with a sparkly powder from Reprint, stars are from my stash
