CFC70 - Black and White Plus One!

Hello Sweet Friends!!

I’m back again with the latest CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, and I’m sure you’re going to love this one as much as I did! Your challenge is to create a CLEAN & SIMPLE design using only black and white PLUS one other color! The possibilities are endless!!

Our sponsor this week is Neat & Tangled – a brand spankin’ new stamp company that has some of the cutest images ever! You so need to check them out! Neat & Tangled has provided a very generous prize for this week’s TGIF winner, but you’ll have to click on through to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to find out what it is! Oh, and be sure and check out the amazing bits of inspiration the other Girl Fridays have cooked up for your consumption while you’re there! Thank you, Neat & Tangled!

When I saw this challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do – especially since I had just received some of Memory Box’s brand spankin’ new wafer thin dies in the mail – be still my heart!! My photo doesn’t do this label die justice, but there’s some amazing embossing around the outside edge that just takes this die cut to another level. And how freakin’ cute is that dangling spider?!! I came very close to adding little beady eyes to him, but stopped myself. I’m not a huge fan of spiders, but the clean and simple lines of this baby just makes my heart skip a beat!
STAMPS: Happy Halloween (Impress Rubber Stamps)
VersaMark (Tsukineko)
PAPER: Black Licorice CS (French Poptone),
White Linen CS (Ellen Hutson)
Penne Frame and Dangling Spider Dies (Memory Box), 1/4” Hole Punch (Fiskars), Lettuce Embossing Powder (Ranger/Adirondack), Simply Chartreuse Satin Ribbon and Linen Impression Plate (PTI)

That’s it for me today, friends! The remodel is in full swing at the new house, so that’s pretty much consuming my days. We’ll be babysitting our grandsons for a few days next week – can’t wait for that! Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

What a fun and fab card, Karolyn! I can't believe I'm saying this, but that is one sweet spider! I love the detail on the label and the fine embossing detail on the card frame - super!

Karolyn that spider is so cute, that is the only time I will say that about spiders!
