CAS challenge on new DT

Hello friends,
I am very excited to be invited to join the DT on  Let's Craft and Create. I must admit when I heard that my first challenge was CAS, I almost did an about turn. You must understand CAS is not my strong point. I don't think I have entered more than a handful of CAS challenges, as I always feel so 'intimidated' by that empty card. Well I had committed and had no choice, so this is what I came up with. When once I had sort of decided what to do it went quite quickly, but then......I had to stop and not add more  and more.

I embossed the bottom half of the card with a CB folder, and embossed the design with white embossing powder,
Stamped the sentiment onto a label
 A ribbon with pearls to finish

Well this was my first card for this challenge, and I will be quite honest in saying I am looking forward to the next challenge. The other members of the DT have made some lovely cards, so please go and have a look and leave them some love.

I will enter this into the following challenges:
Make it Monday...Anything goes
Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge...October challenge...Ribbon
Created with Love challenge #64...Anything goes
The Paper Nest Dolls challenge #16...Anything goes
Paper Creator's Crafts #16...Pink or blue
Addicted to Stamps and More...Clean and Simple
Lady Anne's Stamp challenge #12, must stamp anything goes
Stampin Royalty #200...Anything goes

Have a great week, it is downhill from here. Take care and see you soon.
Love Ursula
