Bloggers Challenge - Embossing

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Thanks to those who played along with last weeks "Loved Theme" challenge.  This weeks challenge is to add Embossing to your project.  This can be ANY type of embossing. 

If you'd like to play along, please link back to this post on your blog, mention you created your card for the Bloggers Challenge Embossing Challenge, and link your card below using the Link Tool.  Just a note on the link tool, your link should be a direct link to your Embossing Post, please do not link to cards that were created prior to the challenge.

I created the background using the Glimmered Texture Technique (Scarlet/Pearl Glimmer Mists/Swiss Dots Folder/Rose Ink) from the Technique Junkie Emboss or Die CD (see information on sidebar). Then added some wonderful images from Kitchen Sink Stamps.
The Champagne glasses are from Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Champagne Celebration, the Rose Hearts are from the Multi Step Sweet Heart Roses and the sentiment is from the Multi Step Wedding Couple set.

Champagne Glasses color recipe:
#3 Going Grey, #4 Going Grey, #2 Sahara Sand, #1 Sahara Sand stamp off

Sweet Heart Roses color recipe:
#2 Ruby, #3 Ruby, #4 Real Red, #1 Ruby stamp off

Other challenge entered:
Moxie Fab World Stamping with Shimmer Sprays
