Embossed Metal Birthday

Unscripted Sketches is having it's 200th challenge...wow! It addition to using the sketch, there is an optional piggy back challenge (make something other than a card), which I did not choose. Instead I focused on the sketch and reached from my embossing metal and my texture templates.  I punched squares from silver, gold and copper colored metal and embossed each with a different pattern. Next I cut a rectangle and embossed it with a fifth pattern. I adhered all the embossed pieces of metal to a piece of black cardstock and trimmed around it. For the background, I used a piece of metallic patterned paper which I cut and matted on black cardstock. I adhered these pieces to a cardbase and finished by writing Happy Birthday on black cardstock with a gold marker.  I really love all the textures and have the the perfect recipient in mind for this card.
