Happy Birthday with Emboss Resist 1st Attempt

I've been dying to make a card with the Sheet Music background stamp ever since it arrived at the house.  My first thought when I saw the TGIF challenge for this week was to try the emboss technique with the sheet music background stamp.  I tried using the clear embossing powder with the basic black ink for the background stamp.  I then used the aquapainter over the top of the embossed stamp for the ink resist.  You can't really see it in the picture, but the notes do have a shimmer that shines through the watercolor wash.

This card also met the criteria for the Stampin' Up! Only challenge 180.  This is a perfect birthday card, especially with the added balloons.
