Embossed Celebrate

Good Morning!
Here in Canada, today is the first day of spring although it isn't very spring like here in Thunder Bay, Ontario I tell ya. Our snow was almost gone, we had days where it was warm enough that a spring jacket was all you needed, but Mother Nature was fooling with us. We got a huge dumping of snow this past Wednesday. Ugh.....enough already!!!
Anyway, it's time for a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time. For the next 2 weeks, we want to see your
Challenge #258

It can be Heat Embossing, Dry Embossing, Emboss Resist or Embossing Folders. The winner gets this awesome prize.....
How wonderful is that?

Here is the card I made:
