House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #19: Embossing

To help motivate me to make more cards I have decided to start participating in some online challenges. This is my first one for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. For these challenges you are required to use at least one House Mouse and Friends image and follow the theme requirements.
The theme for this challenge is embossing. I chose to use the Happy Hopper image "Balloon Journey." The image is colored with Prisma colored pencils. I embossed the left side of the card base with the Fillagree texture plate from Fiskars. The Happy Birthday sentiment (My Sentiments Exactly) is heat embossed. I embellished with some ribbon and a scalloped circle punch.
