CFC90--Black and White plus 1


Have you been following all of the excitement at CAS-ual Fridays?  Tonight's the night when the new team of Girl Fridays is being introduced, and I'm thrilled to say that I will be staying on for another term!  You can see the rest of the DT announcement on the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog.  Let me just say--I feel incredibly humbled to part of such a talented group!

As if that weren't exciting enough, tonight is also Release Night for the latest batch of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!  To celebrate, CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is sponsoring this week's challenge, which is to use black and white plus one other color on your clean and simple design.



I used an image and sentiment from one of the newest sets, Only You.  I love the clever mix and match sentiments in this set, centered on the word "you".

I chose Lucky Limeade as my accent color, stamping the flourish with it and coloring some rhinestones with my Copics to match.

The black cardstock panels are debossed with a diamond pattern for subtle texture, but the sentiment panel is really the star of the show in this design.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Black, White)
Stamps:  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps (Only You)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Lucky Limeade), Memento (Tuxedo Black), Copic markers
Tool:  Papertrey Ink (diamond impression plate)
Accessories:  rhinestones

I hope you'll join in the fun this week!  I always love seeing the splashes of color in the gallery.

I promised you photos of my daughter's Valentines, and I hope to be back with those over the weekend.  There just aren't enough hours in the day since I took on teaching a class this semester, and I've missed spending time with all of you here in blog land.

Have a great Friday!
