CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #36 -- Penguin Suit


I think I got my card in just under the wire! In honor of Penguin Day, CAS-ual Fridays latest challenge is to create a CAS black and white card, using ONLY black and white. Yep, just black and white, period.


Julie Ebersole created a CAS card in a recent online class and I just loved it--so I CASEd it. I didn't have the same size flowers as she did--mine are smaller, so I went with a square card. I really like how it turned out, but hubby didn't.

I asked him what he thought about the black flowers and he asked if it was a sympathy card. So I made another, alá Julie's colors:


He liked it much better.
