CAS-ual Fridays: Back in Black

Happy Friday!  Since it's Friday, it's time for another fabulous CAS-ual Fridays Challenge.  The challenge this week is to create a card with a black base. I'll admit that it took me a while to come up with a card that I liked, but the third time's a charm!  

Our fabulous sponsor is Lil Inker Designs.  They have fabulous stamps and dies. I love how their dies have so much texture!  Be sure to come play along so that you can win a Lil Inkers Gift Certificate!
For my card, I used the frame from Lil' Inks along with the sweet little banner die and matching stamps/sentiments.  To add a touch more dimension, I added a little bit of white ink to give the woodgrain a white washed feel.  Love the combo of red, black and white!


What do you think?  Want to play along!  I'd love to see more of your gorgeous creations!
