No stamping on this one

The other day a few of us were working on a technique that was new to me using stencils and embossing paste.  Most of my results were a little messy (it was my first time using the paste), but after fussy cutting the image it didn't even matter.  Here is a card I just made using a blazing sun - and since we are in the midst of a heat wave - I'd say it is apropos.
This was made with gold embossing paste, a bit of glitter and a touch of chalk in the center.
Papers are from the Close to My Heart retired Pemberly Paper Pack.  The sentiment is the border strip off one of the sheets in the pack.  

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Get Inky Challenge #8 - Summer Sun Fun
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #180 - Any Embossed Work
Make It Monday #149 with Bugaboo Stamps - Always Anything Goes
Crazy Challenge #149 - Without Stamps
