Birthday Challenge At Heart 2 Heart

Welcome to this weeks challenge at {Heart 2 Heart}

Happy birthday to you. This weeks challenge is all about your birthday. Each month has a color that you use in your project. My birthday is in November, so I my color is Cocoa. Trust me, I was not thrilled with this. I kept looking at this challenge going 'why me'. Then I went to Pinterest and searched brown. Got a couple ideas. I do have a second project I will be posting later this week. 

Searching through Pinterest, the gold / brown combo showed up a lot. And somehow this ended showing up. I loved the simple stick snowflake look. 

So here is my card. This is actually the second take. The first one just was too simple. didn't look like a snowflake. So take two. 

I took a piece of cardstock, covered it with Versamark and used our new gold embossing powder. Two layers, and then cut into strips like Popsicle sticks. 
I also embossed the sentiment, I went to Hobby Lobby to find a embossing aid. Something to help the stray powder from sticking. They didn't have one. Looked online to make my own. It involved nylons. Which I don't own. But I do have corn starch. So simple is the best for me. I have a bag with corn starch and just brushed it on. Works for me. And look, no stray powder.
