Being a bit "EMBossy"

Well what's this weather all about? Me and my umbrella lost our battle today, need to buy new umbrella which I am really annoyed about as I have managed to keep this one for over a year as I usually lose them as soon as I have bought them, I also have the same problem with sunglasses but at the moment I know exactly where they are as I have had little need for them so far......
Anyway I recently made a birthday card for my dad which features Couture Creations World Map embossing folder

I have embossed the World map onto Kraftcore card and inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo
The compass has been embossed from the same folder and cut out.
The map paper is from my stash.
All papers have had the edges distressed
Hot Air balloon stamp is from indigo blu
Embellishments include creative expressions screw brads
Bakers twine
Tim Holtz spinner and cog charms
Card base is Kraft Card

I am entering this card into the following 2 challenges both who feature Embossing as their challenge.

Thanks for looking
