In this birthday card tutorial, Joy Baldwin shares how she creates  a colorful floral background using Ranger Speckle Embossing Powders and the Simon Hurley create. Flower Garden stamp! Speckle powders are the perfect mixture of colored powder, gold & white flecks, and subtle sparkle ideal for adding both color, texture and shine to all your paper crafting projects.
