b+w cas card

Going simple for today.
Less is More is aiming for 1000 entries and here is mine.
~ Ü ~

Someone requested a simple black & white card with those exact wording. I used a Cute Card Thursday sketch for the layout, but stretched it 
to fit a rectangular card.
The background is embossed with a CB folder, with a half-moon of textured wall paper. The ribbons are satin layered over grosgrain. The lacey square is a spellbinders nestie.
And as a tip . . . if you're using wallpaper, do not use double-sided tape. In a few weeks, it will completely detach. There will be an oily stain where 
the tape used to be.


Thanks for stopping by!
