Birthday Sundaes #13 - Birthday Card with Embossing

It's Birthday Sundaes time again!  The Design Team has come up with some amazing cards to inspire you this week!  Our challenge #13 is Embossing!  You can use heat or dry embossing on your Birthday card!  Here is my embossing creation!

I used several different embossing folders on this card because hey, it's an embossing challenge..hehe!  The Turquoise background is embossed with Spots & Dots, the sand with Swiss Dots, the Green Octopus is Tiny Bubbles and I think the embossing on the seaweed is called Textile Textures!  I layered all my embossing fun onto an Orange card base!  I'm entering this fun creation into the Color Challenge at My Pink Stamper this week!  Can you tell what the colors are? 

I added little goggle eyes to the cute little octopus and inked him some cheeks! Everything is outlined, inked and popped up (after being embossed of course) to create this fun little ocean scene!
