A trio of challenges

Good evening! I've seen quite a few cards on blogs & Pinterest using embossing paste & decided I really needed to try this, a new technique for me. So I've managed to use this technique whilst combining 3 challenges!

 CAS(E) this sketch challenge ...

  Just us girls would like to see embossing ...

And Addicted to CAS are asking for creations using the code word 'Birds' ...

Here's the card I came up with ...

CBS 'Tag along' stamps & dies
SU bird punch & 'Punch potpourri' stamp set
MFT 'Petal circles' stencil
White embossing paste
Versacolor 'Heliotrope' ink pad 
Dovecraft 'Back to basics IV' paper

Thank you for stopping by. Take care.
