CFC45 The Bold & The Beautiful

I am glad to be making another card for   CAS-ual Fridays! This week for CFC45 it's  The Bold & The Beautiful- create a Clean And Simple project using pastels and black.

I enjoyed making this card because it is for my son's girlfriend. She is a lovely girl and she always has nice things to say about the cards I make. I used my Brayer Set from Inkadinkado with  one of the patterned rollers. I used the the Versa-Mark and embossed sections in different pastel colors. 

I made a mistake after I ran the brayer on this card today. I sprinkled the SU embossing powder on the first section and than, rather than put the powder back in the container, I sprinkled the next color on the card. I always think it is good to let the powder sit for a minute or so. As i started to take off the cap for the third color it dawned on me that I would never be able to put the powder back into the containers once they mix with each other. UGH!  What was I thinking? I couldn't throw out the powder...It kinda made a purple color. Oh well. you live and you learn. 

I love my embossing powder and hate to waste any of it!

And while I was stamping away my daughter was busy making her own 
"living stamp":

She is 16... This is our fourth go-round with a teenager. It is the closest she will get to ink on her body. Or, so I say.  Haha - Yes, the best is yet to come!

Thanks for coming to see my card and have a nice day.
