Simply Black and White!

This card is for a sketch CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge for the Simply Saturday challenge at Andrea's Stampin' Moments blog. I don't often make CAS cards, I'm always tempted to add more, but I like how this turned out!

I used a bird stamp from a Bella's clear unmounted stamp set, the greeting and flourish underneath it are from a Flourishes word stamp set. I used a textured white cardstock from Pedigree Paper for the base card and added some dots to the black scalloped Nesties die-cut with a white Signo gel pen. That's it!



It's been much cooler here the last 2 days, a welcome relief from the heatwave! Hope you have a great day, thanks for stopping by :)

Wow Lyn, this is simply stunning! Like you I am always tempted to add more to CAS cards, but when you see one like this you know it doesn't need anything. Thanks for joining in, and thanks for the inspiration!

G'day Lyn, love, love, love this card. It's gorgeous!!!! Well done.
You should make some more while you're at it. This would be a nice card for anything. Well done.
Just had a quick flick through your other creations - they are gorgeous. IT's so nice to see you creating again. It must be therapy in itself.

Take care.

Luv ya.............Sandie

Such an elegant design, & the white signo pen on the black cs is very effective. Enjoy the cooler weather, & let`s hope it lasts for a while longer LOL :)

You rocked two of my challenges. I can't do b&w cards nor can I achieve an elegant simple look. Bravo for achieving both in such an outstanding manner.
