CAS-ual Fridays Challenge

The weekend is here!  I had a great day today (Saturday)! My husband let me sleep in a tad which was wonderful.  The boys went out to the flying field this afternoon and left me in a quiet house!  It was lovely....absolutely lovely!  I created a special wall hanging this afternoon for my neighbour Owen who LOVES Halloween.  I can't say I'm a big Halloween fan myself however he and his brother have drawn pumpkins all over the driveway and the anticipation in their house is building for October 31st!  I'll have some pictures for you tomorrow!

Today's card is for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge.  I love Black and White cards!  I decided to add is some red to this one!  I love red!  I wanted to use the Mixed Bunch stamp set and the coordinating Blossom Punch.  I should have used the Delicate Doily Embossing folder or the Vintage Wallpaper but I chose the Fancy Fan instead!  I cut a flower out of the black before I adhered the red flower on.  I also embossed the flower in clear embossing powder!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red
Stamps: Mixed Bunch, Itty Bitty Banners
Ink: Versamark, Basic Black
Other: Real Red Satin Ribbon, Clear Embossing Powder, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, 3/4" Circle Punch, Basic Rhinestones, Bitty Banners Framelites, Dimensionals, Blossom Punch

Here's a picture of my little sweetheart before he headed off to his first full day of school.  Hard to believe it.  He did awesome!  He said he had a great day and came home absolutely exhausted!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
