CFC86 - You are so sweet

Happy Friday!  Today is the day that 3 brand new stamp sets are being released in the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps store!  YAY!  You should totally go check them out, but first, check out this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge!
CFC86: Long & short
Create a clean and simple project with one long side and one short side (for example, 3x6 or 4x8).

And this week's sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!  How cool would it be to win some fantastic brand new stamps?!?

So for this week's challenge, I wanted to use the "masculine" new set ("Rad") to make a feminine card.  When I sneak-peeked this set in this post, I used it for a masculine birthday card, but mentioned that you'd see a cute girly card if you stayed tuned.  Well here it is, this paper yummy:

I used the adorable cloud die from the Simon Says Stamp Talk Bubbles die set, and die cut the cloud from some tiny chevron patterned paper by Basic Grey.  I created my sentiment using two stamps from the Rad set.  I stamped the words in Versamark ink, and embossed using white embossing powder.  I LOVE the way these words stamp so crisply, especially the outlined word "sweet".  I wasn't sure how well the white embossing would show up against a lighter pattern, but I'm super pleased with how it turned out.  This card just makes me happy!  I added some felt hearts from American Crafts, and finished off my card with some light pink stitching.  Here's a close-up of the cloud speech bubble and hearts:

I had so much fun making this non-traditional-sized card - I actually made two!  I hope you'll play along with this week's challenge.  You have until next Thursday at noon EST to do so.  And if you didn't come here from CAS-ual Fridays, please check out the challenge blog for some super exciting news, including a DT call!

Thanks for looking!
