Clean and Simple meets JAI Embossing!

Well, school started today but only one of my children went to school today. My DD Aditi is sick with cold and flu and is at home with me. The viruses seems to get attracted to her a lot more now-a-days. Pretty girl you see! She is reading as I type and rolls her watery eyes lol! Anyway, since I am stuck at home, I decided to craft. Here is a card I made using Clean and Simple sketch and since I embossed the images, I am entering the card for JAI - Embossing challenge as well.
CAS sketch for you.

Here is my take on the challenges

Challenges: CAS Sketch and JAI- Embossing

Cardstock: PTI's Kraft, Melon Berry and Hawaiian Shores
Stamp set: Kind and Caring Thoughts from SU
Ink: White craft ink from SU
Accessories: Note punch from SU, White embossing powder from SU, PTI's Black satin ribbon,PTI's melon Berry button, Sponge and corner punch from SU.

Always nice to do a basic technique on a simple card. The focus is great on the image and sentiment.
Thanks for these beautiful challenges week after week. Its always exciting to see a new CAS sketch or whats new this week at JAI. Have a great week!

Beautiful, Gayatri. I love the image you've embossed, and the sponging of white ink is the perfect touch around the edges. Love it!
