CAS Friday!

I love Friday!
Not only does it mean we made it through another week,
but two of my favorite challenges get posted on Friday too.

Today I combined the CAS-ual Friday challenge...
to use black & pastel colors.



with the Clean & Simple Sketch Challenge (FTL183)


To make my card I started with a Basic Black card base. I die cut a large scallop circle from Blushing Bride cardstock, then cut two circles from Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the script background in Basic Black ink on the smaller of the two circles using Wplus9 Defining Words. The circles & scallops were layered, the smallest on dimesionals, and placed off the side of the card base. I trimmed the excess with scissors. I wanted to keep this card very crisp and clean. The only embellishments I added were the butterfly in two shades of pink and the single pearl.

I love the striking contrast of the black card base & the pink accents. What fun challenges today, thanks for the inspiration!

Stamps: Wplus9 Defining Words
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette
Accessories: Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Scallop Circle Die, Basic Rhinestone
, Circle Scissors Plus
