a scratch and sniff birthday card!

i created my first scratch and sniff card for the most recent challenge at a blog named hero and the gallon, quart pint technique challenge over at the moxie fab world

it's all about embossing, and the video techinique i watched uses heat embossing to create the scratch and sniff! so exciting!! i saw this video on the hero arts facebook page last week, and could not wait to try it out!! and now that i've made one, i can't wait to make more! lol!

here's my card, beware: it's an odd color combination!

orange, purple and cream! what?! well i had to use purple (which i'm really not a fan of...) because i was making this card for my bff in michigan. her favorite color is purple, she loves peach flavored things, and cotton candy! so as you can see...i tailored this card to her completely! 

the cotton candy faces were made into the scratch and sniff part with peach flavored jello and clear embossing powder! i even used an action wobble on the big guy there! he's ready to party! 

the other one is also popped up, but he can't move! ha ha! 
all in all, it was super fun to create and try out a new technique i hadn't done before! :)
hope it brought a smile to your face!
