Bon Voyage card

My very first WOW Embossing Powders project!! I am so excited about it as  this card is going to
Winter 2012 CHA too
I still can't believe I am a part of this fantastic team with so many well- known names on it! But I am, I really am and I hope you like this shiny BON VOYAGE card I made

So is the product list for this card and first of all Wow products
Brocade background stamp
Suzy West By the Bay bold colors collection: California Sunshine (Yellow) embossing powder, Cable Red embossing powder, WOW Clear Glossy embossing powder
Other products: AC white and Kraft cardstock,AC  black chipboard Thickers, Vesamark embossing ink, EK border punch, Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round Tool 25, bubble cap and metal charm, May Arts velvet ribbon, Craft shop red ribbon, October Afternoon paper inside a charm
 I made the card panel with entire stamp and clear embossing ink and then heat embossed it very generously with California Sunshine  powder. Then I made a back panel bigger than the card, punched it and scored it to cover the front. Holes were made for a bow and actually the card was done. I added this EC charm  and made a sentiment with AC Thickers. But as those letters were black, I decided to make some highlights and added some Red Cable Car embossing powder over it and then  some Clear Glossy powder too, and bingo- it made it glossy, high and a bit brown as I wanted it to be. Just a charm: add some embossing powders over your printed chipboards and alter them to fit the colors
OK- all for today
I hope you like this card
