Black & White Just A Note Card - CAS-ual Fridays CFC #36 Challenge

I came across the CAS-ual Fridays Penguin Suit challenge this weekend.

You have to make a black and white card - no other colour allowed, not even a smidgen.  I love black and white cards and I had the perfect stamp in mind - on loan from my crafty friend Lesley - so I had to join in.  I started off by stamping the image, trimming it and mounting to a black layer.  I then stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner of my 5 1/4" square card blank, added the image panel, added black grosgrain ribbon tied in a knot and rounded the right hand corners.

 Inside I stamped just a part of the stamp in the bottom corner.  Lastly I added a circle element to the envelope flap.

I really don't think you can go wrong with a black and white card, they seem to come together quickly, especially if you keep to a CAS design.  I found after making this card I was really keen to make another one so stay tuned for another post today with another card for the CFC #36 challenge!
