mim #101 and CAS-ual Fridays # 86

 I am really enjoying participating in challenges lately.  This time, there is an interesting challenge over at Papertrey on Layered Embossing.  Confession time... I have not tried embossing before although I had good intentions.  I have my embossing powders and heat gun to prove it.  Somehow,  I just feel intimidated with that technique.  I finally gathered up the courage to try this and it was a lot of fun.

I also checked what is happening over at CAS-ual Fridays and found that this week's challenge is to create a CAS (clean and simple) card that has a long and short side.  Sounds fun!

I made this card for a friend who will be celebrating her birthday in Feb.  Here is my 4x8 card...

I used Papertrey Ink stamp (Sentiment Signs, Ribbons and Bows, Funky Florals), cardstock (berry sorbet), ink (smokey shadow) and patterned paper (striped smokey shadow).  I also used Versamark ink, SU white embossing powder and Ranger polysparkle powder. Love the shine and sparkle from the clear embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by!
