Happy Birthday- Resist Embossing

I managed to squeeze in one more challenge from Frosted Designs! Today I tried Anita's challenge which was to use resist embossing. I have done this before, but I figured it was time to try it again. My nephew (and godson's) birthday is on Wednesday so I decided to make a card for him.

I initially was thinking of going with a jungle theme and stamping some leaves on my card for the technique. I realized I don't have any "jungle" leaf stamps so I decided to go with a forest animal instead. I found this cute snail on the "Boys Will be Boys" Cricut cartridge and decided to go with that. For the background, I stamped the leaves with VersaMark, heat embossed them with clear embossing powder, and then sprayed the paper with three different colors of mists. The colors didn't end up as vibrant as I had hoped on the green cardstock, but it gave some texture all the same. The "splat" that the sentiment is stamped on is the flower bush from "Live Simply". I took some Stardust Stickles and smeared them behind the snail to make it left like it left a slimy trail.
