CAS-ual Fridays (Black base)


Happy Friday!
Summer is so busy around here that it's all I can manage to do to make it through the week:)
Today I had to take some personal time off from work because the kids have doctor's appointments, the cats have vet appointments, and I have an errand list a mile long!



Your project base must be black!
I love starting with a black base for my cards. It's so fresh and eye-catching.

I used the broad side of a Copic marker to create thick black pin-stripes, and topped it off with a red foil bow (using the adorable bow die from lil inker) and a white embossed sentiment from the Pinwheel Sentiments stamp set.

And Lil Inker is our sponsor this week too!

So why not join us and link your project up to the gallery at CAS-ual Fridays for a chance at a fabulous prize from our sponsor?! You also won't want to miss all the inspiration from our FACEBOOK Team either! Each day of the week, a new card will be posted on the CAS-ual Friday's FB page...be sure to check it out!

Thanks for stopping by,
XOXO

Ooooo, aahhhh... striking. Can't believe you drew in the black lines! Hope you have an eventful day 'off' - today's my last day of teaching for the summer! (year-round school) Crafting, reading, beach... yippee!

Dana! It's good to hear from you and it meant the world that you commented on my blog. :) Thanks for that. This card is so elegant and I love the stripes and little dab of red there. I immediately think of a classy piano joint. ;) Hope all's well!
