Red, White and Black

This card was inspired by two challenges.  This week's Addicted To CAS - Diamond, and Muse Challenge #284.

While surfing though links yesterday I came across the Muse Challenge.  This is a CASE challenge where each week one of the DT's or Guest DT's present their card design, and the challengers' take their shot at CASE'ing it.  The gorgeous card below, by Michelle W., is the inspiration for this week's challenge; you can jump over to her blog here

Now over at Addicted to CAS, the code word this week is Diamond.  The DT has some wonderful creations, but it was a card by Ceal (here) that gave me the final inspiration for my card.  

For the Muse challenge, the red is pulled into the background via the ink blended Diamond (Distress Candied Apple Red) and sequins while still having a floral theme (Altenew).  The DP edging was excluded mostly because I don't have any DP or stamps that could mimic Michelle's design.      

For the Addicted To CAS challenge this card might be a bit close to the line for a true CAS, but it still has lots of open white space.  

So thank you to both challenge Host's for the inspiration today.  This card has the added benefit of working in a variety of colors.  

Thank you for stopping in.


  1. Well wow! This is a brilliant combination of the 2 challenges and I love the use of the black flower - just stunning! Thanks so much for joining us at Muse this week, Carole!

  2. Wow Carole what a wonderful card. I just love that panel with the splash of colour, so stunning.

  3. Gorgeous card Carole and thanks for the shout out!

  4. Absolutely beautiful CASE. The florals fairly pop off the card. Love the colorful background .

  5. I love how the focal image is just in black and white. I always love how modern images look when they just have a bright colorful background and a really graphic focal point. Awesome!

  6. Gorgeous card. I love the way you inkind the diamond and set that fabulous folower upon it. Thanks for playing with us at ATCAS!
