making spirits bright

woo-hoo! another week means another challenge over at lawnscaping
this one is all about getting texty!

so i made a card (sorry, it's another christmas one!) with some fun, non traditional colors, and lots of heat embossing!

the teal background of the card is from the basic grey jovial paper pack. and i love it! it's teal, and has text, and is distressed! beautiful! :) 
i used the snowflakes from lawn fawn's 'frosties' stamp set, which were heat embossed.

the sentiment was made using 'harold's abc's' (my old friend!) and 'quinn's abc's'. i cut away part of the card stock, and put some clear acetate behind it, to make it look like the bottom of the card is floating, and connected only by the word bright! i love that effect! 

i didn't have any yellow embossing powder, so i heat embossed the 'making spirits' in white and then colored the letters with my yellow marker! :) the word bright was also heavily glittered with some picket fence stickles! 

so that's it! super texty, super cheerful, and super fun! (in my opinion!) :)
