MTS226 and CAS131 Artistic Black and Pink

Hi everyone!  Monday,'s Monday again!  The weekend zipped by but I did get a little stamping time in after my company left; I used the Match the Sketch sketch and the CAS on Sunday color challenge of pink, black and white!

I was sad to see Awesomely Artistic on the retired had such nice elements with an eclectic, vintage feel to them.  I thought it would be fun to make a CAS card with Melon Mambo and Basic Black...they are strong colors, but the floral is open and delicate, so the color isn't too overpowering:

I stamped the frame and dragonfly in Basic Black ink and fussy-cut them out, even cutting out the inner portion of the frame.  I used a sentiment from Wood Words inside the frame, as this is a customer's thank you card, and originally I had stamped it directly on to the floral image, but I didn't like how it got a wee bit lost, so I stamped it again on some vellum, layered it on the back of the frame and then re-lined it up with the original stamped sentiment.  Much better:

A black scalloped mat and some speckles from Swirly Bird gave it a little "movement", and I found some retired enamel dots in Strawberry Slush that matched enough!!  

A couple more pictures from Curriculum Night; this is the pot Cassidy made:

and the teepee:

and at one table, we could write a message with Indian symbols; this is what I wrote:

and here's John's:  a man goes fishing in the rain!  LOL!!!!

Thanks for popping in today!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I like your use of the vellum and it looks perfect in that frame. I, too, was disappointed to see that stamp set retire. Black and melon mambo...definite winners!

Beautiful card LeAnne. Love the pink and black color combo and the sentiment stamped on vellum.
Cassidy did a great job on her pot and tepee. Cute messages with the Indian symbols.
Have a great week.

We had so much fun finding ancient drawings like this on the sides of mountains in Utah, LeAnne! you guys are GOOD!!
Love the pink and black... and my favorite bug in the world - I call him 'the hitchhiker' as they love to take a ride on our hats while fishing!
