{Pretty In Pink}





Good afternoon and welcome to my blog! After a short break from blogging I am back and hopefully getting back into the groove. Today I created a card for this weeks
CAS-ual Friday's challenge which was to create a CAS card with embossing - any kind. I added heat embossing using "tinsel" embossing powder. I used a stamp set from "Clearly Inspired" called Brushed Florals. This is an older set but I love love it and it is a stamp set that I will never part with! I used A Muse Studio pigment ink in Shell, and Bubblegum. I love the rich color they leave on any kind of card stock you stamp them on. The card stock I used is from SU, Natural, and Pretty in Pink. The sentiment is from the A|S set "Essential Sentiments" and the heat embossing was created with the SU set "Yummy". The embossing is very subtle, but that is what I love most about it! I added acrylic flowers from the Making Memories "Flutter" collection, and I finished off the card with machine stitching. I love the way my card turned out, and I hope you do to!  Have a great day and thank you for visiting my blog!
