Natalie & Amy 'Embossing' Challenge

Good morning. Firstly did you remember to put your clocks forward an hour?  Secondly wishing a Happy Mother's Day to my dear mum and all those worthy mum's out in blogland. 

Ok onto business we have a new challenge for you this month at Natalie & Amy's and it is super easy 'Embossing'. This can be either heat or dry embossing the choice is yours. I ended up with dry embossing, I did try to heat emboss the sentiment but couldn't get an even coverage so gave up. 

For my card today I used this cute little rubber stamp by Nellie Snellen called Christmas With Dawn but as you can see I made a birthday card. I think this image is one of those that could be used for several occasions as it has nothing specific on it to tie it. I added some stickles around the embossed part of my die cut for a little sparkle.
