"Yellow" Color Perceptions ATC

For August, in the Color Perceptions ATC swap on ArtVentures, the color is Yellow. The ATC is supposed to be predominately yellow, and be based on how yellow makes me feel.  For me yellow feels hopeful, and got me thinking about the Yellow Brick Road and humming "follow, follow, follow, follow, follow the yellow brick road!"
I used two shades of yellow card stock and ran them through a brick embossing folder that had vintage photo Distress Ink rubbed on one side. Made sure to run the bricks vertically in one shade of yellow, and horizontally in the other shade of yellow.
 I laid the two pieces of embossed yellow card stock on top of each other and cut out a winding road. The edges were colored with vintage photo Distress Marker and adhered to dark brown card stock, switching the different shades of yellow to give contrast between the "road" and the background.
 Made a large star embellishment by punching out different sized stars out of different yellow papers and adding some yellow glitter, a yellow brad and some thin gold card stock behind the star.
 Attached the large star embellishment. Stamped the words "follow your dreams" on very light yellow card stock and added them to the ATC.
