lawnscaping challenge - emboss this

good morning! and happy monday! 
it's a new day, and a new week, and a new challenge over at the lawnscaping blog! :)

i love embossing! dry or heat! and that's what this challenge is all about! :)

for my card, i focused on heat embossing! and lots of different lawn fawn stamp sets! 

i heat embossed the sentiment from wish you were here onto some vellum that i colored with distress inks. the white really POPS against the colored vellum - i LOVE it! :)

and i made that burst of woodgrain by embossing the woodgrain backdrops onto white carstock. heat embossing in white, and then i added color with some distress stain! love that!!

the fox is from into the woods, and i colored him with copics and then popped him up for some dimension! 
the clouds are my favorite part! i used the cute, puffy, adorable clouds from starry backdrops! i colored them with some aquas and light, light greys!! i LOVE how they turned out! :) 

ok, so now it's your turn! :) i really hope you join in on the fun with this challenge!!
