AAA Cards Challenge #59

Hi there it's time for the latest challenge over at AAA Cards
and it's all about Embossing

Here's my cards which uses the Pure Florals: Chrysanthemums from Uniko
and a sentiment, also from Uniko, Simply Said Birthday. 

I started out by stamping the largest flower head on water colour card
and the leaves on the base of the card, using a mask, with Versamark.
Next up I've used Stampendous Sterling Silver embossing powder before adding 
various purple watercolours from Distress Inks and Kuretake Gamsai paints.
The sentiment is heat-embossed with Hero Arts white EP and to finish some
sequins and gems from Pretty Pink Posh.
As it's an 'Anything Goes Week' at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday challenge
I'm' going to pop this card in over there too!
