Mmmmargaritas anyone? 
It's time for another Made Especially for You challenge! This week we are working with the heat embossing technique, I for one LOVE it!
 Here's how I created the background using the heat embossing technique. 
I stamped Peachy Keen's Lattice Background stamp with VersaMark and used white embossing powder.  
 After heat embossing it, I used Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink to give it color.
(I saw this stamp/color from Nikki aka Scrappin Navy Wife - here)
 I'm not sure if you can see, but the sentiment is also heat embossed -with pink embossing powder. 
The sentiment is from Market Street's Tiki Time set. 
I colored the drinks with copic markers. Yes, I'm still a newby LOL 
Both the drinks are stamped images from Market Street's Tiki Time set also. 
 I added stickles to look like salt. 
The twine is Charcoal from The Twinery. 

Come join us at Made Especially for You and show us your cards using this technique! 
The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to Adams Acres.
