CCEE1522 Get out your tools

Today is the last May challenge for hostess Joanne on CCEE Stampers.
We had to get out our tools for this one.  It was a must have something heat embossed, have some paper piercing, paper piecing, AND some type of framing on this card/project.  It should be pretty easy to get ALL these elements on one creation.  Have fun!!!
Well I don't know about fun as it was certainly a challenge to put all the elements on this card, when it came to embossing all I could think was dry embossing as it has been so long since I had heat embossed. 
Okay paper piece -  tick
paper pierce - tick
framing - tick
heat emboss it - tick
Yeah I got it all done.

The image for my card today is from the Cat's Pajamas, it is one that I have had for years, every so often I like to pull it out for some inking. The patty paper, frosting, party hats, candle, star,present have all been paper pieced. The sentiment heat embossed. The imaged has also been framed with paper piercing and a fancy frame die.

So happy to have completed this challenge
