CASual Friday's Color Blocks Challenge

I have been working on restoring my craft groove these past few weeks -- fighting my natural desire to hibernate. The cold weather and gray skies suck the life out of me, plain and simple. (That and multiple circumstances which hinder sleep more than one night in a row.) So, when I crank out a card that my picky, picky self actually likes, I'm pretty pleased. I have loved how this one turns out - so much so that I keep it out where I can see it! I have to remind myself, "You can do it!".  =)

This week's CASual Friday challenge is to use Color Blocks. I rarely get to play along with this challenge as much as I'd like.

Here is my card using a Crate Paper strip that was all blocked off for me. It was large chevrons, so colorful and happy and once trimmed down it worked perfectly for what I wanted.

I added a simple sentiment from Simon Says Stamp "Apothecary Labels" set and embossed half in white, layering over an identically stamped black image. Added a few matching enamel dots, matted it with a black card base and Voila! A fun little card that I really like. It would be a good one for Big Daddy but he's already seen it. Drat. (The dangers of leaving them out in the kitchen so I don't forget to blog them!)

Thanks for stopping by to visit! 

God Bless,
