Thankful Card with Favorite New Technique

If you follow me, you know I have had so much fun recently playing with a technique that features both dry embossing and heat embossing. I pulled out an old embossing folder from Sizzix with thankful words on it and embossed the aluminum foil covered background after applying Versamark to the inside of the folder. Before embossing the aluminum foil, I swiped on black and green Staz-on inks randomly. I dumped on some green and copper embossing powders and melted them. The result is this unique lovely background. I layered the finished card front onto a black card base and add the Fall Border die cut from Die-Versions. 

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Scrapy Land and the Thankful challenge at Dies R Us.
