But he that dares not grasp the thorn...

May is a busy month for birthdays and my first card of the month is for a female friend, so I’ve used the lovely Single Rose Bride from Sami Stamps.

This image practically screams elegant to me but in a lovely simple way so I had to go CAS with the card so off I went looking for a suitably CAS sketch to use.  Instead I found the colour inspiration over at Addicted to CAS and realised I didn’t need a sketch, just those colours and my image, nothing more, and I love the result.

I’ve embossed the image rather than colouring it to go with my CAS but elegant feel.  Over at As You Like It they are asking which style of embossing is your favourite.  I love wet embossing, I love the raised texture it creates and I love the different colours, particularly the metallic ones.  Funny that wet embossing is my favourite when I have no more than 20 pots of embossing powders but I must own at least ten times as many embossing folders, so goes the contradictory nature of a crafter!

As my card features a female image and is for a female friend I am also entering it in the current challenge over at Come and Get It.

Chalks & Powders etc
