Monthly Technique Challenge!

Hello there,
My upline, Patty, sent a challenge to my Stampin' Up! group.
You try a different stamping technique and share your creation with the rest of the group in order to be entered into a contest for a FABULOUS prize of a $50 shopping spree from the new catalog.  This month is the first month, so here goes...

The technique is called Embossing Resist.  You use white embossing powder on a stamped image and then sponge ink onto the image.  Then, you use a tissue to wipe away the ink on the image and you get something that looks like it has been highlighted in a very special and unique way. 
I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest, here's my card:
I used the new set, Memorable Moments, Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler.  I used clear embossing powder with Versamark on the numbers up top, then used the White embossing powder for the Happy 30th Birthday sentiment and inked it with Cherry Cobbler. And to add a little bling, I put some rhinestones on.
What do you think?
Thanks for checking in!
Sharon
