Embossing Powder+Heat Gun=FUN!

Hi Guys,
Being a self proclaimed YouTube junkie I just love all the crafty tutorials and I am subscribed to the wonderful and talented Dawn!
Today Dawn had a Faux Metal tutorial today and I've been wanting to try this technique for ever! I've read lots of different instructions but I'm a visual person so I was soooooo happy when I saw Dawn's video, that when I finished watching it I got out all my supplies and had a go!
It was super easy and the end results are just stunning! I have a workshop next Saturday(23rd Aug)and I'm going to show how to do this as the ladies will flip over this lol!
So here's my card, a little 3" X 3" card:

Turned out great, I think lol!
